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.
