Since its very beginnings, Eclosia has pursued its regional expansion in a way that strikes a balance between the development of the Group and that of the local economies in which it operates. It understood early on that it needed to consider each country’s unique economic and cultural differences and that a one-size-fits-all approach would simply not work. To deepen its understanding of the individual markets it served, the Group sought out partnerships with local players and adapted its strategies to each country’s specific regulations, business practices and needs. Thanks to this approach, Eclosia continues to maintain strong ties with countries in the region, and their citizens, to this day.
Eclosia embarked on its regional expansion as early as the 1970-1980s. It began by expanding its livestock farming activities in Reunion Island, Uganda, Comoros, Seychelles, Tanzania, Kenya and Madagascar. In the 1990s, it established an inclusive business model in Madagascar to carry out its activities in the poultry sector; shortly after, it diversified its investments in different sectors in Mozambique, Reunion Island and South Africa.
Today, the Group is firmly established in Madagascar, Seychelles, South Africa and Kenya—a strong regional footprint that not only enables it to strengthen its know-how, but that also serves as a springboard to tap into major strategic markets of the Indian Ocean.
