RIP Adrian Tarte CBE 20 January 2012 Fiji - Banaban Voice


20 January 2012

Founder of the Virgin Coconut Oil industry Fiji

To our mentor, our friend, our colleague, our Elder - Adrian you had the vision and the spirit to believe in the future of Virgin Coconut Oil. You were the pioneer in Fiji that created an industry from nothing. You proudly showed me the first coconut tree planted on the farm by your family in 1878 and went on to become the first and only certified organic coconut farm in Fiji. You were dedicated to the environment long before it became the new world order. You created a totally sustainable renewable energy source to run the whole plantation and plant using steam power. What an amazing life you lead over the past 86 years and what a beautiful family and legacy you have left behind for the rest of the world to share and benefit from.

We will be forever grateful for your support in employing so many Banabans and their families on the farm. Your spirit will remain with us all in every drop of oil we send out to our loyal customers through out Australia and exported to the far ends of the world.

Ken Sigrah & Stacey King and family

With all those eggs you could also substitute Banaban coconut flour and some Banaban organic coconut crunch as well.
