Starkist Samoa to operate two-days next week
StarKist Samoa will operate on Apr. 14 and 15, but production will shut-down starting Apr. 16 and work is scheduled to resume Apr. 21. The company is one of the two companies performing “siva” and “pese” in the April 17 Flag Day ceremony, says Michelle Faist, spokesperson for StarKist Inc.
The other company performing is Bluesky Communications, while other businesses are welcome to participate in the Flag Day parade, but should register with the Office of Samoan Affairs, said Fiu Johnny Saelua, the governor’s chief of staff.
Asked for a reaction about StarKist Samoa being given the honor to perform this year, Faist told Samoa News via email from the company’s U.S. headquarters that, “StarKist Samoa employees are honored and excited to be performing during the annual Flag Day celebration.
“StarKist Samoa employees are united by the motto, ‘Think for all not one’. Our employees have truly demonstrated this as they have worked hard to prepare for this special performance,” she said.
