This was revealed this morning by the general manager for Allied Food Brands (Fiji) Ltd Ms. Helen White during the signing of the tenancy lease agreement today.

WHITE: “These things take time so initial plans to have a branch in Fiji started in 2014 and the main stakeholder behind this was the franchise owner and Australian businessman Paul Mclaren after he had set up a branch in PNG.”

She said the decision to have a branch specifically in the Damodar City complex was because of the location.

WHITE: “It’s a great place and has a bustling atmosphere which is perfect for the product. We are expecting to set up more branches in Suva and in Denarau, Nadi but right now we are focused on getting this branch up and running.”

Ms. White said that  locals could be assured that employment opportunities would be offered once the branch opens its doors for business.

WHITE: “As I speak the first container of equipment and uniforms is on the way and we are looking forward to employing 25-30 staff.”

Damodar Group Chief Executive officer Mr. Div Damodar said he was also looking forward to the partnership and the launching of the three brands.

DAMODAR: “I would like thank Helen White, if you didn’t take the initiative to bring the brand to Fiji this would not have happened.”
