Welcome to Zindia and our group of companies!!

More than 20 years ago, Zindia’s founder Mr. Jacob Mannothra pioneered the export of Pine logs from New Zealand to India. Over the last 20+ years, our group has evolved to now become a vertically integrated natural resources group focused on the timberlands (forestry) sector. We are a proud owner of 4,000 Ha sustainable Pine timberland assets in NZ and plan to increase our portfolio.

We are dedicated on meeting the rapidly growing timber needs of the Indian market, whilst also catering to other markets in Asia, including China, Korea and the middle-east. Our products include logs, lumber and engineered wood products (e.g. Plywood, MDF, LVL).

From our antipodean beginnings in NZ, the shape of our business has changed towards a multi-national footprint, with existing operations across four continents. By 2020 we see ourselves actively operating across 15+ countries in South America, North America, Africa, Europe, Oceania and Asia.

We actively participate across the timberland commodity value-chain. This includes owning and harvesting timberland assets, coordinating mid-stream logistics, chartering vessels and collaborating with destination ports and logistics providers for product delivery to the end users.
