Bougainville shipment of fruit and vegetables bound for Gizo rejected by Solomons Agriculture Ministry

The Solomon Islands Agriculture Ministry has rejected a shipment of fruit and vegetables from Bougainville, that had been sent to the tsunami devastated province of Gizo.

Solomon Islands officials had been concerned the shipment could include pests and diseases.

Bougainville's quarantine office says it does not have the equipment necessary to thoroughly check and spray the food.
