Milestones

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 guarantee to the Mauritian population a continuous supply of locally refined and packed edible oils of international quality, at competitive prices.

For more than four decades now MOROIL has unfailingly sustained these objectives, with a continuous improvement of its production and distribution activities. MSB, HACCP and SA 8000 certified, MOROIL today produces oils meeting the most demanding international standards with a quality assurance and consistency in supply which owe MOROIL brands the trust of a wide range of distributors, professional users and consumers.

MOROIL’s acknowledged competencies have also been conducive in the setting up of partnerships with renowned European producers, namely Lesieur from France, Sovena in Spain and Attianese from Italy for the representation and marketing of their products on the Mauritian market.
