A group of South Pacific Islands have decided to ban Western Junk food in an attempt to curb future health problems and go organic.
Torba province, part of Vanuatu, in turn, has kept restrictions on western food stuffs and wants to concentrate on their agricultural resources. Out of the 10,000 people present in the province, a major portion depends on agriculture and such a move would be welcomed by them.
“At the moment we have an infiltration of junk food from overseas. it is easy to boil noodles or rice, but they have almost no nutritional value and there is no need to eat imported food when we have so much local food grown organically on our islands.” Father Luc Dini, a community leader and head of the local tourism council noted.
