Leaders of Torba province, Vanuatu, plan to introduce legislation within the next two years, banning the import of western foodstuffs in favour of home-grown produce.

Changes are already underway. Local chiefs have backed Father Luc Dini, head of the local tourism council, in ordering tourism providers to serve only locally grown, organic food.

Torba also plans to become Vanuatu’s first organic province.
