Niu Venture Forests is a family owned company based in Suva, with operations in Viti Levu and Vanua Levu.

With charismatic budding entrepreneurs Christine and Warren Pickering at its helm, the company has two core businesses; one is a timber processing and profiling business that follows sustainable harvesting practices with efficient utilisation of the company’s existing industry infrastructure.

The second core business, Kavara Woodart, focuses on the value addition of forestry products to maximise the full potential of the timber resource.

“Kavara Woodart is the brand name given to the products created from the value-adding initiatives of the company. It creates unique earthy line of products consisting of wooden kitchen accessories, which include cheese platters, serving platters, cutting boards, placemats, personalised plaques, coasters and table runners among others,” explains Christine.

Christine is the pioneering force behind Kavara Woodart and through her efforts the company hopes to empower more women and disadvantaged people in the timber industry through value adding.

Kavara Woodart has been successful in exporting its products overseas in the form of authentic Fijian gifts.

Niu Venture Forests currently supplies profiled Vesi and Mahogany such as flooring and lining products to the local markets, especially tourism operators.

The company has also ventured into waste utilisation ensuring that the timber is used to its full potential as there is a lot of wastage once the logs have been ripped into timber.
