Agro Industry

Innodis Poultry Ltd is one of the largest chicken producers in Mauritius, with a fully vertically integrated business model comprising of breeding operations, hatchery, broiler farms, processing and further processing plants. We are also active in the regional market as we export poultry products and chicks to Madagascar and operate a broiler farm and processing plant in Mozambique. In the past, we have also provided technical and consultancy services for the implementation of poultry farms in Nigeria and Angola.





Innodis Poultry Ltd produces chicken under the brands Prodigal™Carmen™ and Le Poulet Fermier™. This latter is a unique and exclusive free-range brand, reserved for chicken reared in the open and having access to pasture. 


Food safety and quality standards

Regular cleaning to ensure
strict hygiene

Food Safety is always a top priority for us and we have strict controls and safeguards at every stage of our processes. Our management practices in line with the Codex Alimentarius and other international standards and benchmarks as evidenced by our multiple quality and food safety certifications.


Innodis Poultry Ltd pays special attention to animal welfare and complies with International Codes of Practices for poultry production. Our chicken are reared in cage-free houses which are naturally ventilated with unrestricted access to feed and water.


Our operations were ISO certified in 1994. In 2005, we were HACCP certified. This was followed by the ISO 22000 Food Safety Management System certifications delivered by the Mauritius Standard Bureau in 2009 and the ISO 14001 certification delivered by AJA. Our chicken is also MSB MS 65 and HALAL certified by the Jummah Mosque



Antibiotics Free Chicken

All our chicken are provided with a cereal-based (maize and soya) feed enriched with vitamins and minerals. The feed does not contain any animal by-products, colorants or any antibiotics. No growth hormones are used during any production phase.




Further Processed Products


Innovation is an essential part of our strategy. Our Further Processing Facility has allowed us to broaden our offering with value added chicken products, such as breaded steaks, burgers, nuggets and unique products such as sausages and smoked chicken. It has also allowed us to make further inroads in new markets. Our association with Nando's as a supplier and our long-standing relationship with our customers in the catering business are clear evidence of our flexibility to adapt to changing consumer trends.






Sustainable development & Green Initiatives


Bio-digestor and Composter


Innodis Poultry Ltd is committed towards environmental protection and sustainable development. Bio-composting plants have been installed on our farms and we strive to recycle most of the waste generated by our production systems. In this context, a plant for the production of biogas energy from our chicken abattoir wastes is already in operation. This plant also treats all our processing plant wastes, the by-product of this process being further directed to a composting plant to produce organic fertilisers.


Vegetable production


Furthermore, we are also setting up greenhouses to produce vegetables and fruits in line with smart agriculture practices (agriculture raisonnée). We will be using the composts generated above in these greenhouses, hence closing the recycling loop. This is consistent with our ISO 14001 certification obtained in 2014.

International Activity, Exports and Consultancy


Moçambique Farms, Limitada, Mozambique

This operation is operated by our fully-owned subsidiary, Moçambique Farms, Limitada. Presently, we are producing close to 50,000 birds per week, with the aim of doubling capacity in the near future to be able to respond to demand in the Maputo and adjacent areas.
