StarKist launching new tuna product at Samoa Trade Fair
StarKist Samoa is set to launch a new product for Samoa at next week’s Trade Fair in Apia, according to the draft program of the two-day event that will open Nov. 28.
Responding to Samoa News inquiries, StarKist Co., cooperate spokesperson Michelle Faist said, the “launch of the new StarKist Samoa product is our 5 oz. Chunk White Tuna in oil,” adding that she will provide later any new information.
The Trade Fair program states that StarKist Samoa will launch the product during the opening ceremony in front of the Government complex in Apia. The launching follows the official ribbon cutting to open the Trade Fair Doors by the U.S. Charge’d Affairs with the American Embassy in Apia.
The program also states that there will be a tasting event of StarKist products and other company “specials” presented at their booth.
As the largest private employer in the territory, about 60% of StarKist Samoa’s workforce comes from neighboring Samoa.
