Patisserie Pacifica opens at TappooCity Lautoka

Group president Daniel Kim defined Patisserie Pacifica as a dessert café that is determined to give Fiji’s wider public the taste of premier pastries.

“As South Korean-Fijians, we realize that Fiji’s people are deserving of a bigger variety of food,” he said.

“Our cakes and pastries are very unique and are created with the people of Fiji in mind.”

Patisserie Pacifica is Grace Road Group’s fourth food outlet to open at a Tappoo establishment.

“We’re thrilled that the Grace Road Group chooses to grow at our Tappoo locations, especially because of the value they place on quality of service and in the unique products that they offer,” said Tappoo Group director Mahendra Tappoo.” Their food outlets are of very high international standards and in keeping with the high standards of our shopping malls.”

Mr. Kim said their respect for the Tappoo Group was mutual.

“Tappoo is our strategic partner in our food businesses because their motto, their ideas and their values are the same as ours,” he said.

“And that is that we serve the customer well and in doing so we serve the nation.”

He said Tappoo’s high hygienic standards and their “good locations throughout Fiji” were also key foundations for the partnership.

Like its other food ventures, which includes the popular Snowy House and the Noodle Story, their pastries and specialty cakes are intricately created from fresh, healthy produce that are all grown at their farms.

For instance, a significant difference is the use of pure virgin coconut oil instead of butter in all of Patisserie Pacifica’s goodies.

Mr. Kim said locals were employed in the operations to provide the coconuts.

“We are promoting Fiji in all aspects – from the food to the décor and design of our shops,” he explained.

He said the idea of opening a specialized pastry shop had been in the pipeline for more than a year. He said his team worked on the concept of the brand, the shop design, crafting the specialty offerings for about a year before acquiring the necessary equipment.

“Our passion is always create a new venture and to serve our nation, our people with a different variety of healthy food.”

Mr. Kim estimated that the equipment, including the shop fittings, cost the company about $500,000.

“We are truly proud of this five-star shopping mall that we have created for the people of Lautoka and the western division”, said Mr. Tappoo. “We are extremely happy with the very positive response from the people from throughout the division. This is the western division’s first shopping mall and people are just loving it. State of the art cinemas, an international food court with a variety of cuisines on offer, department stores, supermarkets, specialty stores, hair & beauty salon, pharmacy, children’s play center & so much more. A complete shopping, food, fun, and entertainment destination for locals and tourists alike. This is what TappooCity is all about”, said Mr. Tappoo.

Neglect is the highest recorded type of elderly abuse in Fiji-Tappoo

Click Here To Read Article...

Neglect is the highest recorded type of elderly abuse in Fiji.

This was highlighted by Dr Krupali Tappoo while speaking at the Elder Abuse Awareness Forum at Australian Pacific Technical College who says that about 1 in 10 older people experience abuse every month.

Dr Tappoo says that rates of abuse may be higher for people living in institutions than in the community and this type of abuse may come from family or other community carers at home or in a residential aged care facility and may include physically restraining patients, depriving them of dignity and choice over daily affairs, intentionally providing insufficient care and over or under medicating.

She says that it was also revealed in a study conducted in 2010 that neglect of elderly persons stands at 58.5 percent, physical abuse of elderly persons is 15.7 percent, financial exploitation is 12.3 percent and emotional abuse is 7.3 percent.
Dr Tappoo says that the study has also revealed that the older population aged 60 and over comprised 8% of the total population and is projected to increase to 17% in 2050 which will be about 170,500 people.

She says that the oldest old population which is 80 years and above, is expected to increase from 5,000 in 2010 to 28,500 in 2050.

While highlighting the statistics at the Elder Abuse awareness forum Dr Tappoo stressed that the elders in any society are to be respected rather than abused.

Fiji Human Rights and Anti-Discrimination Commission Director, Ashwin Raj says that there needs to be a recognition to the contribution of the older persons to the social, cultural, economic and political sectors of society.

He says that stakeholders need to work to have an inclusive society that instills dignity, respect for human rights and meets basic needs through empowerment of older persons.
