Spirulina in Mauritius

Food supplement consumption is the craze of today. At least in our environment and amongst the people we socialize with, the conversation some how get to health issues and food. Is it particular to us or is it a universal trend? For sure the pharmacies of the world now stock and sell more food supplement. Even supermarkets have now expanding shelves of food supplement. People are indeed more health conscious and takes more vitamins and health dietary supplementary food.

My neighbor with whom I had a lengthy and mind opening conversation last week, I learnt of her project to start off the production of Spirulina. She triggered in me the interest to learn more of this food supplement. She is planning to start off a production through a social enterprise. I find that it is a very good idea to combine the objective of alleviating poverty by giving jobs and rural development.

What are challenges of starting this enterprise? What resources are available? What technical and managerial knowledge would be necessary? What are the added difficulties in running a social enterprise?

Let us wish her success in her Spirulina enterprise.
