About Unique & Authentic Treasures

Around 1735, Mahé de La Bourdonnais brought a tuber of South American origin, called cassava or manioc, into Mauritius. At the time, sugar estates were growing it and using it mainly for cattle feed. In 1868, Hilarion Rault, whose father had come from Britton in 1807 to settle on the French colony Isle de France, developed a recipe for cassava biscuits. Family members on whom he had tried his recipe encouraged him to market his biscuits. Thus in 1870 the “Biscuits Manioc” were launched on the local market.

Since 1995 the biscuit factory welcomes visitors who wish to discover its traditional cooking method. In line with the ancestral philosophy, several generations have taken care of the old factory, always bringing their creativity into play to relieve the team of workers from the hardest tasks, some production stages have thus been improved through mechanisms built by family members themselves. But most of the equipment, such as the antique scale which is still in use and the traditional oven, date back to the beginning of the factory.

Five generations have followed one another to keep this unique secret recipe and perpetuate this tradition, which although more than 140 years old still promotes values and products to fulfill a craving of today’s demanding society: handcrafted products using natural ingredients.
