The Biosecurity Authority of Fiji (BAF) in collaboration with the Consumer Council of Fiji (CCoF) is urging members of the public to exercise caution when shopping online and refrain from purchasing regulated items. 
The call comes in light of increased number of interceptions with seed parcels being made at Fiji’s international mail receiving centres.

It is to be noted that seeds of all kinds are biosecurity regulated articles and currently not allowed to be imported through online buying or postal services.

While BAF is closely monitoring all entry points through which items procured online are brought into the country, the consistent purchasing and illegal import of seeds from variable unsubstantiated internet sources remains one of the biggest threats to Fiji’s agriculture and horticulture industries as well as the environment.

Over the past several months, there has been a stark increase in seed interception which are purchased from online sites and imported into Fiji through parcel post.
