Our Heritage

Grounded for two centuries in the Mauritian economy

The origins of Compagnie de Beau Vallon Limitée are grounded in the history of sugar cane cultivation and milling in Mauritius. Drawing on an agricultural heritage dating back to the first half of the 19th century, our company was incorporated in 1921 and currently owns Riche-en-Eau, one of the largest sugar estates on the island with 3,500 hectares of land stretching from the south-east coast to Midlands. Compagnie de Beau Vallon Limitée is poised to continue this legacy while improving its resilience to a changing market place through diversification into key sectors such as non-sugar , agriculture, hospitality and property.
