Agriculture

Founded in 1911 as a sugar estate, Medine has accompanied the economic development of Mauritius throughout the years, by diversifying its activities in trade, tourism and other sectors. Situated in the vicinity of the country’s major cities on the highly desirable west coast of Mauritius, Medine has engaged in a major integrated property development programme, following the recommendations of its 2005-2025 Masterplan. It was the pioneer in the Integrated Resort Scheme sector in Mauritius, with the Tamarina Golf Estate.

    While increasing importance is being given to biomass as a renewable resource for the production of energy in Mauritius, Medine has proudly opted for this ‘green’ electricity export option. Medine Milling has undertaken a significant upgrading of its power generation facility and now exports some 18 GWh yearly on a commercially sustainable basis during the crop season.

    Fruit and Vegetables

    Since 2002, a team of qualified professionals started producing fruit and vegetables in carefully selected fields of Medine. From the very beginning, they adopted a different method of production as they wanted to produce top quality goods as environmental friendly as possible. Medine Group has been the pioneer in Mauritius to engage in sustainable agriculture (agriculture raisonnée). Sustainable agriculture is the production of crops using farming techniques that protect the environment, public health, human communities and animal welfare. This form of agriculture enables us to produce healthy food without compromising future generations’ ability to do the same.


    From a few tons of food crops per annum, our activities have grown and we now produce, on 160ha of land, 4,000T of fruit and vegetables annually. The Jardins de Medine brand is available across the island in all major supermarkets.  Our passion and expertise make the Medine crops unique.
