Tinned fish supply … RD Tuna Canners, Ltd, a pioneering cannery in Papua New Guinea, has assured the Tembari children of its continued support towards their daily feeding program. RDTC began supplying the day care center facility three years ago, a generous monthly food assistance offered by managing director Pete C Celso. And the tinned fish that the facility has been receiving monthly is not just an ordinary tinned fish product which RDTC produces but a high-quality processed white tuna meat that is being exported to the European countries. The cannery’s monthly supply of 15 cartons of 1.8kg cans is consumed by Tembari’s 150-160 beneficiary children over two to three weeks. The tuna protein goes with rice and veggie meals that are served every day from Monday to Saturday. Celso told this blogsite that his company would like to see the Tembari children benefit from the quality protein that comes with RD products. - AP Hernandez
