It is a secondary cooperative society grouping about 8,000 small sugar cane planters, who form part of 154 Co-operative Credit Societies affiliated to the federation.
The MCAF acts as the mouthpiece of the planting community grouped in co-operatives and therefore is represented on the boards and committees of several institutions which are closely associated with the sugar industry. The representatives have a say in the decision making process and as such safeguard and protect the interests of small planters.
A Co-operative is an autonomous association of persons united voluntarily to meet their common economic, social and cultural needs and aspirations through a jointly owned and democratically controlled enterprise.
The Mauritius Co-operative Agricultural MCAF Limited was founded on 16 August 1950 with main objective of defending and promoting the interests of its affiliates
It was set up at a time when small planters were facing a lot of problems which they could not solve or discuss neither individually nor at the level of primary societies.
Hence the question of joining forces together arises in order to set up the MCAF.
