The R & O Seafood Gastronomy Group, the leading player in the French seafood market (€ 275 million turnover and 1,300 employees), is pleased to announce their integration with The Gourmet Emporium, a leading retailer of high-end food products in Mauritius.

This association capitalizes on nearly a century of experience of the Maison Reynaud, which since 1924 has served the biggest tables in France with exceptional fish and shellfish but also on the sense of customer satisfaction of the founder of The Gourmet Emporium , Madame Emmanuelle Coquet Madoo.

Gauthier and Mathias ISMAIL said:

“It is with great pride that we welcome to the R & O Seafood Gastronomy group the activities created by Emmanuelle Coquet Madoo. It has taken nearly a century for Reynaud House to offer its customers, beyond seafood, meat, fruits and vegetables or wines and spirits. ”

It will be managed by Mr. Dominique Grel (20 years experience in the luxury hotel industry and starry catering) as Managing Director and Mrs. Emmanuelle Coquet Madoo who will be in charge of Business Development on B-to-B activities.
