I'm trying to find out if there are any magazines that cater to FMCG retailers in mauritius? Something the supermarket managers and/or owners would read for market and product information?

These are products that move quickly of a shelf. Chocolates, milk, softdrinks, tea, coffee, chips etc would all typify this term.

Typically all products in a small supermarket are FMCG products.

What are the different supermarlet chains in Mauritius. Stores like Winners or Hyper U? What others are there?

Major Supermarkets - various locations: Winners, Spar

Groups/Cooperations: GSR (Grandes Surfaces Reunies) , a group of large supermarkets (mostly Spar supermarkets) have instituted this cooperation.

Hi warrenhick,

No bother,

I must admit that I haven't got a clue what you're after!

Perhaps if you explained in more details(and without using abbreviations :mrgreen: ), people might be able to help you.

Best Regards

:) I'm trying to get an idea of how many food retailers there are on the island. I'm talking total numbers. So if you add the Spar, Winners, Hyper U, Game etc, plus all of the independent stores, corner cafe's and convenience stores, what does it come to? 1000? 2000? ....

If there are a decent number (more than 2000) then I'd be interested in getting a database of such stores with their postal addresses, if such a database even exisits?

I'm looking at moving over there and as such am just investigating possible business opportunities...

Another thing I would be interested in is island news. Are their any e-mail based newsletters that I could subscribe to?

Thanks in advance

Hello again warrenhick,


I've found your database:

A quick search on our Yellow Pages revealed 81 supermarkets (all combined and including the main ones)

http://www.teleservices.mu/yellowpages/listing.php?heading=0000000288


and 7 hypermarkets

http://www.teleservices.mu/yellowpages/listing.php?heading=0000002336


Do the same for restaurants and other things you might think of!


So which leaves us to 100 instead of 1000 (that's quite low isn't it?)

The only weekly and monthly English newspapers that I know of are:

http://www.mauritius-news.co.uk/FrontPage.asp

http://mauritiustimes.com/


Hope this helps

udester
