Debina Lobine in Italy

Mauritius, together with Rodrigues possess a rich biodiversity comprising both endemic and exotic flora and fauna and represent a goldmine for the global food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industry, yet it has been largely under-utilized up until now. 

With the increasing demand for natural products or plant-based products, the endemic flora and fauna hold immense potentials for the food, pharmaceutical industry and economic development.
