A new local product made from locally-grown produce and fruits has hit the shelves of major supermarkets and stores around Papua New Guinea.
Winestar, an Eastern Highlands-based company, uses local produce and fruits such as ginger, tamarillo, strawberry, lemon and elderberry to manufacture mild fruit wines.
It is a subsidiary of Nowek Ltd, a long-established company in the Highlands.
Winestar entrepreneur Sarah Shelley told The National paper that it will also provide job opportunities for many women in Goroka.
She says the plan is to expand operations to Kundiawa and other centres, by the end of the year.
