MSS Website terms and conditions
The Mauritius Sugar Syndicate (“MSS”/”We”/”us”), set up pursuant to the Mauritius Sugar Syndicate Act 1951, is the sole organisation responsible for the marketing and export of sugar produced in Mauritius.
The MSS has for object (i) the sale of all sugars received by it for the account of its members, all of whom are sugar producers, comprising corporate and independent sugar cane growers as well as millers, and (ii) the distribution of the proceeds of such sale after deduction of common expenses. In relation to such purpose, the MSS has the power to make regular payments to the sugar producers.
The operations of MSS are structured into specialised departments geared to provide support services of direct relevance to its core business, namely marketing and sales, logistics and planning, finance and accounts, service assistance to producers, and also ensuring the quality, food safety and ethical compliance of the sugars supplied with international sustainability standards and relevant local legislation.
