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.
Nama Fiji products are widely marketed and distributed. Sadranu’s San Francisco partners were introduced to her by a customer who had visited the Essence of Fiji transit lounge (a facility close to the Fiji airport that offers spa treatments, a café and many other services for transit passengers)
She says those partners helped her rebrand Nama Fiji for the premium market and have just launched Nama Fiji “on a massive platform in Dubai which has over 2 billion outreach, covering, Southeast Asia, Europe, the UK, Australia and New Zealand.
