Our Vision for the South Pacific
Pacific Finds is an eCommerce platform created specifically to help micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs), with a strong focus on women entrepreneurs, to effectively promote their business and sell their products online.
We aim to empower these businesses in the Pacific through our eCommerce platform and digital storytelling and further shared across social media platforms; enabling them to reach a wider market. This will enable them to not just sell products and services but share their stories, which will in turn create more conscious consumers who are buying products and seeing how their purchase contributes to a family’s livelihood.
With a focus on digital storytelling, we want to showcase authentic Pacific island products and services made by hardworking individuals and community groups, which are traceable using QR codes where, through a scan of a code on a purchased product, customers are able to find additional information – “a story” about their creator/producer/artisan. This will directly link consumers to producers, farmers, artisans and communities.
Through the Pacific Finds ecommerce platform we provide for these MSMEs (namely artists, women entrepreneurs and rural community groups) with their own business page where they can sell products from (from mushrooms to baskets); and take bookings for services from (such as the Vou dance group’s “Fiji Untold” event).
We also have an authentication programme whereby each vendor is screened and provided with a Pacific Finds Certificate of Authentication to ensure only quality products are listed on the website.
We are passionate about creating a genuine Pacific experience for consumers so that they are more conscious about what they are buying and more importantly, from whom.
