RENEWABLE
& SUSTAINABLE

Native to Australia Acacia Mearnsii, commonly known as the black wattle, is a fast growing legume that has unique properties and a wide array of applications in leather tanning and retannage, as well as in a host of other industries.

WHOLLY-OWNED BY
OUR GROWERS

In 1997, a consortium of growers purchased NTE from Mondi Forests, making owners of the people who grow its raw materials.

Today, NTE is owned by some 700 growers, comprising corporate, medium, and small-scale growers. The small and community-based growers are supported by NTE’s Forestry Development Officer who provides extension services and support to these growers.
