A GROUP of 20 women from Markham in Morobe brought 214 bags of food to sell at the Digicel PNG Women in business expo at Waigani, Port Moresby.
Spokesperson Christina Tally said they would be returning home on Saturday and hoped to sell all the bags with prices ranging from K100 to K300.
“We are selling local food cooked in clay-pot for K100. When you buy the food, you get the clay pot for free. Food that is prepared in the clay pot can be still warm up to four hours,” Tally said.
Food they brought in a ship container include bananas, yams, coconut, taro and ginger.
“We are very happy with Digicel PNGWiB, NCD Governor Powes Parkop, local MP Paul Isikiel and the Government for the opportunity to be here,” Tally said.
“We are happy that now we have a place to sell our goods in the city that can cater for women to sell their produce.
“Anyone interested to resell at Gordon market and other small market retailers can come and buy the bags of food at the Steamships Compound.
“We will be leaving on Saturday and the produce is still fresh.”
