About Us Company profile

CIEL Limited is a leading diversified investment company in Mauritius, operating five business clusters (Agro-Industry and Property, Textile, Hotels and Resorts, Financial Services and Healthcare) spread across Mauritius, Africa and Asia with 27,000 employees. Since its beginnings in agriculture in 1912, the pioneering group is continuously exploring new avenues of development and international expansion. In February 2014, CIEL was listed on the Official Market of the Stock Exchange of Mauritius, following the merger of one of its investment companies into the Group’s holding company. 

It has now acquired an international dimension not only at operational level but also at shareholder level, while the ultimate control of the company remains with local shareholders. With a market capitalisation of about MUR 9.3bn (USD 265.3m) as at 30 June 2016 and a consolidated audited turnover of MUR 18.53bn (USD 526m) for its financial year ended 30 June 2016, CIEL is one of the largest listed Mauritian companies.
