A PINCH OF HISTORY
In 1726, the first salt pan was built in the South-East of Port-Louis by Jean Dominique Caudan, who came to l’Isle de France (Mauritius) from his native Languedoc.
Saunier by trade, he signed a contract with the Indies Company, with the aim of replenishing ships and preserve foodstuffs.
The salt production continued into the 19th and 20th centuries around Port-Louis and in Tombeau Bay. Throughout the years, the salt pans were moved to the South-West of the island, in Black River and Tamarin, due to more favourable weather conditions.
We focus on :
