Corporate
South East Fibre Exports Pty Ltd (SEFE) is the owner of the Eden woodchip mill, until 23 December 2015 it was a subsidiary of Japanís biggest paper manufacturing company, the Nippon Paper Group Inc. It is now owned by Melbourne based Allied Natural Wood Exports, at the time a $2 company.
Eden was Australiaís first woodchip mill, set up in 1969 by the Daishowa Paper Manufacturing Company of Japan and was the first overseas operation of that company. Woodchip exports commenced in December 1970.
Nippon Paper took over Daishowa in 2001 and the Australian subsidiary changed its name from Harris-Daishowa to SEFE in 2003.
The Eden chipmill uses mainly native forest trees, most cut down solely for woodchipping. It does not use waste wood and, indeed, cannot process branches, butts or crowns. It can only chip whole tree logs.
Eden is the only region in New South Wales where trees are felled solely for woodchipping. This has led to very large scale logging operations, with virtual clear felling the norm.
Since its establishment it has exported about 40 million tonnes of native forest chips, mostly to Japan and mostly to paper mills owned by its (then) parent company in Japan.

Since ANWE acquired SEFE, no Annual Financial Statements have been reported to ASIC and profit or loss figures have not been available.

Environment and Markets

In recent years, however, improved environmental policies and quality standards by Nippon Paper have placed the Eden operation under some pressure and are forcing it to adjust to a changing market.
