From selecting the right cultivar of sugar cane in Réunion to packaging in Nantes, la Perruche shows you its entire production process.
The sugar canes are selected in Réunion and the cultivar improvement programme began in 1929. The objective was to create sugar cane cultivars that were suited to the island’s contrasting agricultural climate conditions. To find out more about the methods used and research, visit the eRcane site.
Sugar cane is produced in Réunion. The island now has 11 reception centres covering the entire island and 2 factories: the Gol and Bois-Rouge sugar factories. la Perruche’s sugar comes from the Gol factory, located in the southwest of the island.
