Nourishing the fields of the East

SUGAR
We are the leading sugar producer in Mauritius with long-standing expertise in growing, harvesting and milling. We recently overhauled our agricultural activities and implemented our 100% mechanisation strategy, thus adopting precision farming practices. Our goal is now to increase the production of higher-value specialty sugars such as Demerara and Muscovado, while addressing new market demands with innovative standards such as Bonsucro.
SUSTAINABLE FARMING
We produce some 20 varieties of tomatoes over 7,000m² in three state-of-the-art greenhouses. Our crops are solely destined to the Mauritian market and are distributed to hotels and supermarkets across the island. Our current production capacity averages 200 tonnes per year and our crops have been rigorously lab-tested to ensure that no chemicals are present in our tomatoes.
POULTRY FARMING
Since the 1990s, we have been dedicated to the poultry farming industry with the goal of fulfilling the increasing demand for poultry in Mauritius. Our commitment to excellence is evident through our investments in cutting-edge technologies and equipment, including the construction of a state-of-the-art farm in 2022. We conduct broiler chicken breeding at three locations in Mérandon, Mon Loisir, and Sans Souci, with a combined annual production capacity of 4,500 tonnes of chickens.
