Jacques M. D’Unienville CEO Omnicane

“First and foremost, let me congratulate Alyssia Reddy for being such a talented young author and for having chosen to value sugarcane and the homeland of her parents in her adventure series. Omnicane is indeed very delighted to be part of the Sugarcane Boy Book club initiative in Mauritius. Sugarcane which happens to be the oldest cultivated crop on the island has played a significant role in shaping our social, environmental and economic landscape. This wonder crop is today at the heart of Omnicane’s sustainable circular business model enabling its valorization into refined sugar and several co-products like renewable bagasse-based electricity, bioethanol and biofertilizers. The Sugarcane Boy book club’s objective of promoting education and reigniting the passion for reading amongst the youth is truly aligned with Omnicane’s Corporate Social Responsibility priorities. Furthermore, the special focus on children from deprived regions in the south of Mauritius adhere to Omnicane’s engagement towards its neighbouring communities. I wish Alyssia and all those behind the Sugarcane Boy Book club project a successful journey.”
