Nature Island Paper Products, Inc. is 100% Dominican owned and the Managing Director Mr. Severin McKenzie of McKenzie Architectural and Construction Services, Inc. (MAC Services, Inc.) is one of Dominica’s and the Caribbean’s leading architects.
“We are pretty excited about the factory, for it is the first of its kind in Dominica, said Mr. Severin McKenzie, Managing Director of NIPP Inc. “As we seek to enter into the export market, we have adopted “The Nature Island” labeling theme for our products. We are making our packaging as attractive as possible to create a brand name when we launch in the regional market, also when Dominicans come home they can take some of our products back with them and they will be able to say “this was made in Dominica”.
NIPP is a welcome addition to Dominica’s undeveloped manufacturing sector that is entirely made up of the Dominica Coconuts Products, controlled by Colgate-Palmolive; water bottlers; a Barbados-owned paint company; and a few home industries producing some leather work and straw products. The Invest Dominica Authority, a government institution, provided NIPP Inc. with the usual incentives and was very helpful with the application process.
The most significant contribution of this new enterprise to the Dominican economy is the reduction of foreign exchange out of Dominica and the creation of jobs. With the exportation of its products, NIPP Inc. expects to bring in foreign exchange into the island.
NIPP Inc. is an environmental conscious company and all products made by the company come under the “clean and green” label. The “clean and green” label ensures consumers that the products they are buying are high in quality and is eco-friendly.
