Experience the Bounty of the Solomon Islands, First and Exclusive in Malaysia

Trade partnership brings premium brands developed with respect for the local community and environment, now available online and at Jaya Grocer outlets

Kuala Lumpur, 7 December 2023 – The crystal-clear waters and white sandy beaches of the Solomon Islands are home to thriving tuna populations, coconut groves and a variety of natural resources that support local cottage industries.

Now, Malaysians get to experience exclusive #madeinsolomons products that showcase the best of the Solomon Islands, which includes SolTuna, a flavoursome single-origin and sustainably-sourced tuna from the Pacific Ocean processed locally and promptly to preserve freshness, and locally-sourced and manufactured coconut-based personal care brands like Coco Soap by Islands’ Own and KOSI by Kokonut Pacific Solomon Islands personal care products, all distributed by Bountiful Ventures Sdn Bhd (popularly known by its key brand Medella, Malaysia’s #1 coconut cooking oil brand).

“We are proud to bring the best of Solomon Islands to Malaysia, the first country in the ASEAN region to carry our consumer brands. This is a significant milestone for us, as this trade partnership supports the livelihoods of local fishermen and farmers as well as their families. Our countries have much in common as developing nations and we look forward to sharing the best of both worlds and finding new ways of working together,” said H.E. the Honorable Mr Salana Kalu, Solomon Islands Ambassador.

This trade partnership is supported by the Australian government via its Strongim Bisnis initiative, which facilitates engagements between the private sector and the Solomon Islands government, fostering inclusive economic growth aimed at alleviating poverty with a long-lasting and positive impact.

“Australia and Solomon Islands are close and long-standing friends and partners. With Malaysians being keen consumers of Australian brands, we are proud to support our partners in Solomon Islands to join us in delivering high quality products to Malaysian customers. Stronger trade relationships across the Indo-Pacific region benefit everyone and it is great to see the growing number of products from both our countries on Malaysian supermarket shelves,” said Mr Simon Fellows, acting Australian High Commissioner to Malaysia.

Respect for the environment and community empowerment are the backbone of #madeinsolomons. SolTuna (which includes its flagship brand Solomon Blue) is dolphin-safe, Halal- and Fair Trade-certified, and has achieved Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certification that indicates its products are well managed, with fishing practices that meet the council’s stringent sustainability standards, while Coco Soap by Islands’ Own and KOSI by Kokonut Pacific Solomon Islands provide employment, training and skill development for local employees, and use coconut sourced purely from local farmers who maintain ownership of their own land.
