It has a high level of trust with the consumers both in terms of its recognized quality and in terms of food security. In fact, according to a research done by DCDM research, the leading consultancy and research company, Sunny is the Number One Mauritian Brand in terms of top-of -mind.
The company was the first local manufacturer of juice in Mauritius. In the 1960s, the company started manufacturing the Sunny juice in plastic bottle. The quality of the product and the convenience of a 250ml portion pack made the Sunny juice an immediate success. Even today, the Sunny juice in plastic bottle is the best selling juice in the country. In fact, when consumers ask for a juice in retail outlets “boutique or tabagie”, they simply ask for a ”Sunny” and the retailer will know that the consumer is asking for a juice.
The company invested in the Tetra Pak technology in the 1980s. It was the first company in Mauritius to acquire this technology. Tetra Pak is the Number One supplier in the world of machines and equipment for the production of products in carton boxes. Today the company uses the Tetra Brik Aseptic technology to pack juice and drinks in 1 liter and 200 ml format. The juice and drinks are packed in an automatic production line. The juice and drinks are packed in an aseptic environment. This reduces the heating time needed to sterilise the product thus leading to a product which has a better and fresher taste.
In 2014, the company purchased the latest innovative manufacturing technology from Tetra Pak. The Tetra Pak machine that the company purchased is only the 11th machine of this new model to come out of the production lines. This has allowed the company to have the latest cap model which allows the juice to be opened in a single click – One Click opening – whereas traditionally, the cap must first be opened and then a pull-tab opened. The One Click opening is much more convenient to use.
The company has introduced a range of Premium sauces, which are made from high quality ingredients, at competitive prices. The Premium sauces consist of ready to eat sauces which offer better convenience, leading to faster meal preparation and thus precious time savings. These consist of the Premium Pasta Sauce, Salsa Sauce, Mauritian Rougaille to name a few.
