26. Rotuma

Our understanding shifted when we arrived on the island of Rotuma. They have developed the biofuel mill site into a production site for virgin coconut oil – VCO. VCO is a premium food product. The Rotuman’s are investing collected savings from the village to expand into exporting this valuable product. In this picture, I’m standing next to Penamino, who is the manager of the VCO operation. From Rotuma we learned that the mill sites should reduce their focus on biofuel manufacturing and instead make money on VCO.
