International Distillers (Mauritius) Ltd (IDM) operates a bottling, sale and distribution unit of a mix of local and imported spirits, wine and alcoholic products at Plaine Lauzun.
During the year under review, the Company increased its turnover by Rs 104 million to reach Rs 977 million, on account of an 8.5% growth in its sales volume and reflected the strength of its local brands.
Profit realised by IDM in 2017/18 amounted to Rs 82 million, slightly lower than the preceding year. This was mainly due to a change in product mix that resulted in a lower profit margin and took on board higher selling and distribution costs.
The share of profits attributable to EUDCOS amounted to Rs 41 million (2016/17 – Rs 41 million).
