The Islands Company emerged from the vision of the ancient Maritime Trade Roads bridging the West to the East. Journeys along these routes were undertaken in a spirit of adventure and trade. Located half way between Europe and East Asia, some important trade outposts arose in South Indian Ocean: Madagascar, Reunion Island, Mauritius, Seychelles…
Merchants settled and prospered taking advantage of the extraordinary potential of these islands (volcanic soil,unspoiled land and sea, tropical climate) to nurture and trade products such as tropical fruits, spices, seafood… Although the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869 reduced the importance of these islands as stopovers on the East Indies trade route, the reputation of their exceptional products was already established. Today, premium fruits, spices and seafood are exported daily to Europe and North America, where they satisfy some of the most demanding customers.
The Islands Company’s ambition is to leverage new air routes to the East, revealing and promoting the high-quality products from these islands to Asian communities. Inspired by the wonderful variety of exotic flavors, colors and scents of products originated there, The Islands Company takes great care in sourcing, importing and distributing them into Hong Kong.
