Trukai’s relationship with the people of Papua New Guinea spans over 45 years, beginning on February 17th 1970. The organization was initially incorporated as “Ricegrowers – Australia Pty. Limited”, and in its humble beginnings distributed only a single type of white and brown rice packed in polysac bags.
Trukai is also proudly owned by the people of Papua New Guinea through the Melanesian Trustee Services Limited (MTSL). MTSL are the trustee managers of Pacific Balanced Fund (PBF) and its 22,000 national shareholders.
