Our Story

ROYAL BOURBON was founded in the 1950s at the Conserverie de Villeneuve canning factory in Reunion’s east-coast town of St Benoît. At the time the factory specialised in making tropical fruit jam, and preserving the traditional products of Reunion such as bichique fish fry.

1985

The Moreau family founded the company Royal Bourbon and took over the canning factory's activities, developing a wide range of other tinned products.

1991

Following an agreement with the group CPC (later known as UNILEVER) Royal Bourbon set up a factory for dehydrated food products at Bras-Panon.

1995

The brands Maison Rama (spice preparation and processing) and Albius (vanilla and dried fruit processing) joined the factory.

1996

The merging of all these activities (canning, jam, dry products) gave birth to Royal Bourbon Industries.

All of the Group's activities were based in Bras Panon, and Royal Bourbon Industries started distributing the Ceres fruit juice brand.
