Every cup counts in the ght against cancer

Cancer Day, Day, February February 4, 4, 2019 2019 The prestigious Bushells Fiji’s Biggest Morning Tea

The prestigious Bushells Fiji’s Biggest Morning Tea (BFBMT) initiative which was initially launched in the year 2006 by Motibhai Group in partnership with the Fiji Cancer Society as the first ever ma- jor fundraising, awareness and advocacy programme to support cancer patients in the country has already made a massive positive impact in the lives of thousands of survivors across the country. Now running into its thirteenth year, the BFBMT initiative is get- ting bigger and better each year with participation from business hous- es who are now hosting their own morning tea event in partnership with the Fiji Cancer Society. “Every year the BFBMT initiative runs from June to September and over this period numerous business houses join forces with the Fiji Cancer Society to raise funds for patient care, cancer awareness and advocacy,” Motibhai Group marketing manager Abraham Gomes says. “It has been noted that this particular initiative has made a lot of difference in the lives of thousands of patients who have successfully fought their battle against this deadly disease,” Mr Gomes added. He said while cancer is curable and initiatives such as BFBMT has helped many survivors, he is saddened to note that there are many un- fortunate patients who succumb to cancer. “We really feel for those who are unable to win their fight against cancer. However we will continue to assist the Fiji Cancer Society with this initiative for now and for the future,” Mr Gomes said. According to statistics revealed by the Fiji Cancer Society, an esti- mated 79% of deaths in Fiji are due to Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) and premature mortality from NCDs is rising. Of these NCDs, cancers are the third leading cause of death behind cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. Looking at these alarming statistics, fundraising events such as the Bushells Fiji’s Biggest Morning Tea is playing a very important role in cancer advocacy.

Iconic winemaker visits Fiji

The head of Australia’s leading family owned wine company – Taylors Wines is im- pressed with the beauty of Fiji and the friend- liness of the Fijian people. Mitchell Taylor who is the third-generation managing director and winemaker of Taylors Wines was recently in the country for a short holiday with his family. Riding on the success of hundreds of in- ternational wine awards and special recogni- tions, Taylors Wines is an iconic Australian brand and a prominent member of the Aus- tralia's First Families of Wine (AFFW) which is an association of twelve of the most cel- ebrated family names in Australian wine that have come together in an initiative to take the heart and soul of Australian wine to the world. “For three generations our family have crafted great Australian wines in the Clare Valley, South Australia,” Mr Taylor said. “We understand that truly great wines are made in the vineyard and that the art of fine winemaking is to respect and capture the es-

sence of the vineyard site and to highlight the unique varietal expression of each grape vari- ety,” he added. An enjoyable 90 minute drive north of Ad- elaide, the Taylor family winery is located at the southern end of the Clare Valley. Mr Taylor says while the company has received over 4500 medals awarded at pres- tigious wine competitions around the world, the recognition as the World’s No.1 Winery by the World Association of Wine Writers and Journalists in the 2017 World Ranking of Wines & Spirits was one of the most adorable achievements out of all. “The most recent achievement for our company was in November last year when the world’s largest wine show – AWC Vienna International Wine Challenge which was held in Austria and known as the Oscars of wine crowned our 2015 Jaraman Cabernet Sauvi- gnon as the best cabernet in the world,” Mr Taylor informed. “Australia produces some of the world’s

most incredible wines and recent success in global competitions prove this. I know my grandfather, Bill Taylor Snr, who first planted cabernet on our family estate back in 1969, would be extremely proud that his determina- tion has stood the test of time.” While in Fiji Mr Taylor made many friends and took back home fond memories of our is- land paradise. “I take this opportunity to thank the man- agement of Motibhai Group for being an ex- cellent Fijian partner for us over the years and our relationship seems to be getting stronger every year. We look forward to building on the sales and distributions in the Fiji market.” Motibhai Group executive director Bhu- pendra Patel said the company is proud of its association with such an iconic and celebrated wine company of Australia. “Mitchell seemed to have had a wonderful holiday in Fiji with his lovely wife and chil- dren here and we hope to see him again next year.”

BK coupons are back

Valid for the month of February only

The world’s fastest growing hamburger chain – Burger King which has been operating in Fiji since November 2015 has brought back its coupon promotion for this month. “We had received overwhelming response from customers when we first launched the coupons sometime back and the promotion is back due to popular demand,” BK general manager Akash Narsey says. “Unlike last time, whereby customers had to physically bring a printed version to redeem the offers, we have actually made it very easy this time around. “All you have to do is either bring the printed version or simply save it on your smart devices and show it to our staff. If that also sounds a bit too much, just mention the coupons and you are ready to claim your special discounted offers,” Mr Narsey informed. Mr Narsey said the coupons have been widely distributed and can be also downloaded from the BK website and social media handles. “At Burger King, we will continue to bring in new and exciting of- fers for our patrons and we expect a lot of customers to turn up at our stores to take advantage on this limited time offer which is available through BK Martintar, BK Ganilau House and BK Nakasi only.”
