Mauritius Oil Refineries (Moroil) started its commercial operations in 1968 – the very year when Mauritius became independent. In line with the national import substitution policy, Moroil set out to ensure the Mauritian population a continuous supply of locally refined and packed edible oils of international quality, at competitive prices.

Today Moroil offers offers in addition to its range of vegetable oils, a selection of quality food products from various countries, renowned for their food industry as well as for their gastronomy.


The refining process undertaken at Moroil involves the transformation of crude oil into a marketable product by ensuring its stability and preserving the best of its nutritional values and its organoleptic properties. This optimum refining process allows the Moroil oils to preserve the best of their natural values in order to provide us with their essential goodness on a daily basis.
