Avipro wins the NIBA Award

Launched in September 2014, the National Inclusive Business Award was given to Avipro Co Ltd last Friday, 12th December during the prize giving ceremony. 

The award aims at rewarding and giving recognition to those companies which have already taken the initiative to incorporate inclusive business principles into their corporate strategies. The overarching objective of NIBA is to honour transformational business models that integrate people at the Base of Pyramid into the value chain as suppliers, distributors, retailers or customers. 

By implementing La Maison du Petit Aviculteur in 1985 and Chantefrais in 2000, Avipro showed its commitment to promoting small enterprise and including small businesses in its own business model. Today, Chantefrais has enabled the emergence of more than 100 small entrepreneurs throughout the country.

Avipro was awarded Rs 100,000 as a cash prize and project assistance of up to Rs 500,000 under the Mauritius Business Growth Scheme.
