Hampa Ltd is the sole distributor of Ellams Spice Masters-brand spices. Incorporated in 2009 by Mevinn Rajiah, the company makes and distributes spice blends in recipes that were actually created and commercialized by Mevinn’s grandparents in the 1970’s, and then preserved and perfected by Mevinn himself.

Ten years later, Hampa continues to sell Ellams Spice Master products, and has expanded their product range from original recipes to various wholegrain and ground spices. There are now over 90 products under the Ellams Spice Master umbrella, many of which are crucial ingredients in many widely-loved traditional Mauritian dishes.

Crafted using traditional methods, and priced to be accessible to all across Mauritius, Hampa’s products have become a part of their customers’ day-to-day lives and near-synonymous with longevity and Mauritian authenticity. All these brand characteristics have earned Ellams Spice Master products a pervasive presence in retail outlets nationwide despite limited promotional outreach, along with small-scale regional exportation to Reunion Island and Rodrigues.

As Hampa enters its tenth year in existence, they have capped this milestone with substantial recognition for their performance and contribution to Mauritian culture. This includes being ranked runners-up for the Ministry of Business, Enterprise and Cooperatives’ 2019 SME Excellence Award; and earning the NPCC’s Silver Award under the National Productivity and Quality Convention.

Hampa Ltd aims to expand its market share and improve its competitiveness. This strategic goal involves augmenting their traditional production process with mechanical and digital tools to increase production capacity, and then implement more far-reaching promotional strategies. In short, Hampa’s project is three-pronged, and they require funds for the following:

  • To acquire mechanical packing machines to increase productivity, as well as additional storage to accommodate the extra inventory
  • To digitalize key aspects of Hampa’s operations, Hampa is looking to install a mobile invoicing system, a digital inventory system and a security system
  • Upon completion of these goals and increasing productivity, Hampa will launch more far-reaching promotional outreach so as to bolster their market share.
