History

In 1726, the first salt pans 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 (France).

Saunier by trade, he signed a contract with the East India Company,
with the aim of replenishing ships and preserving 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 Tamarin and Black River, due to more favourable weather conditions.
