PACIFIC Lama Traders Ltd, a major copra exporter in East New Britain, is continuing its support to schools.
Recently 30 primary schools received school supplies worth K1000 from Pacific Lama Traders Ltd and its overseas buyer, Holland Commodities International.
Director John Seeto said the support was a token of appreciation and they looked forward to continuing the relationship with growers in ENB.
He said Pacific Lama Traders Ltd was now in its 10th year of buying and exporting copra which started in November 2007.
“During this time, support for the community has always been important to us,” Seeto said.
“This is evident in past contributions to schools, sports teams and health centres.”
He said his family have been in Papua New Guinea for 100 years and his children were fifth generation residents.
“My great grandfather had copra and cocoa plantations at Warangoi many years ago so our family’s connection with the copra industry is a long one,” he said.
“Over the generations, we continue to do business here while maintaining strong and harmonious ties with the people of East New Britain and Papua New Guinea.”
Head teacher of Bitapetep Primary School Adah Kuam thanked the company.
