Nama Fiji is a business built on a Fijian delicacy more often associated with lunch than lotions, and the determination and energy of Debra Sadranu.

Sadranu came to Fiji in the mid-1990s. A trained beauty therapist, she started training local beauty therapists before establishing a chain of spas in luxury hotels and resorts. 

She quickly realised that visitors “didn't want to buy products that they could get back home, that were inflated in price. They wanted something that would remind them of Fiji and their holiday experience.”

She also identified the need for skincare products for use by locals that were appropriate to the Fiji climate and skin types.
