Jardins de Medine

Since the launch of the “Jardins de Medine” brand in September 2012, it has been very popular amongst the consumers. In addition to the flagship products such as onions, carrots, tomatoes (“pommes d’amour”), lettuce, potatoes and turban squash (“giraumon”), the “Jardins de Medine” extended their product range in 2015 with butternut squash, baby potatoes, garlic, ginger, baby carrots and sliced squash. The “ready to eat” segment introduced in 2016 includes lettuces, washed and wrung dry, grated carrots, rocket, cherry tomatoes and finally a combination of lettuce, rocket and cherry tomatoes. As for fruits offered by “Jardins de Medine”, bananas are regularly found on supermarket shelves and, depending on the season, mango, papaya, jujube, grenadine and lychees.

In 2020, as part of the national effort to overcome the world health crisis caused by the COVID-19, les Jardins de Medine launched an easy-to-use online platform to allow Mauritians order fresh fruits and vegetables and get them delivered on their doorsteps.

A comprehensive set of sanitary measures is implemented throughout the production line as well as at the agricultural diversification hangar. The latter has been certified HACCP since 2011; this standard provides food safety assurance through very strict hygiene measures and controls.
