Mauritius flag Mauritius: Buying and Selling

The distribution network in Mauritius

Evolution of the Sector
Mauritius has a wide range of retail outlets, spanning from high-end shopping centres to family-run corner stores. Goods are distributed through the standard channels of importers, wholesalers, retailers, and supermarkets. Distribution of goods is relatively uncomplicated once goods arrive on the island given the country’s size.
Franchising in Mauritius is predominantly, but not exclusively, in the fast food sector.  
According to figures from the Mauritius Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the wholesale and retail trade sector contributed 11.5% of GDP in 2022.
Market share
The main supermarket chains include Intermart (a partner of Intermarché), Super U, Store 2000, Winner’s, Jumbo, King Savers, and Food Lover's Market. The Central Market of Port-Louis is the largest and most emblematic market on the island. Outside of the main towns, convenience stores and local markets are the primary sources of shopping.
