Kavalava is the result of a collaboration between Ratu Cagilaba (TuCagi) and Torika, sister and brother who grew up in the village of Nakasaleka where their father Ratu Apakuki Naborisi was the Matanivanua/Bati Leka to the Tui Nakasaleka.
Their childhood was spent foraging in the ocean for shellfish, clams & sea urchins, playing in the lush rainforest and taking long walks to the family plantation with their father. These walks served as lessons on everything from the village boundaries and local birds to how to live meaningful and generous lives.
In 2018 they decided to invest back in their community by planting a large kava farm and supporting others to do the same. Since this time, they have seen more and more young people returning to Nakasaleka, houses being renovated and lived in again and more farming.
When they started their Kavalava farm in 2018, Torika and TuCagi could never have known a pipeline to export to Australia would open for their first harvest. This pipeline represents a huge opportunity for them to not only provide the finest organic kava Fiji has to offer to Australia but a much better chance to achieve their goal of community development in Nakasaleka with the higher prices the Australian market can afford.
