International partners visit eRcane

altFor its 80th anniversary celebrations, eRcane was pleased to welcome many of its partners from around the world (Mauritius, Tanzania, Senegal, Egypt, Brazil and a representative from Cameroon, Chad and the Republic of Congo).
Visits were organized throughout the week to show them all the different facets of the sugarcane sector in Reunion Island.
The visits included:
eRcane's head offices, with the hybridization glasshouses and the laboratory.
eRcane's 7 selection stations, all around the island.
Sugarcane planted in growers’ fields.
The Tamarins cane receiving centre.
Bois-Rouge sugar mill.
Le Gol sugar mill.
The Plant Protection Centre in St-Pierre.
CIRAD in St-Denis and in St-Pierre.

The various visits gave our partners precious insights into the sugar industry’s know-how in Reunion Island and helped them appreciate the opportunities for working with eRcane.
We would be pleased to organize similar visits in the future for any partners who were unable to join us this time.
