With their tropical climates, unspoiled landscapes and creative, community-minded people, it’s little wonder the Pacific Islands are home to an exotic array of ultra-fresh and flavoursome foods and beverages and unique artisan products.
True Pacific is a programme being driven by the Pacific Cooperation Foundation to help bring the best products the Pacific has to offer to the world.
Despite being lands of diversity, the Pacific Islands all share one thing in common – slow and unbalanced economic growth. With little inter-island trade, the region imports up to five times more than it exports, sourcing most products from larger more developed countries.
Yet the Pacific Islands have an abundance of superb products, most of which never leave their home shores. Many of these products have potential in the premium consumer markets of developed economies and could be providing much needed export income for the communities that produce them.
The True Pacific programme helps Pacific producers with outstanding products to share them with the rest of the world. You can rest assured that products displaying the True Pacific trade mark are genuinely of Pacific origin and meet strict quality standards.
By supporting the programme and choosing True Pacific-endorsed products, you are helping empower Pacific producers to unlock their economic potential and develop more sustainable communities, while safeguarding their cultures and traditions.
