"Sugar is an essential ingredient for everyday food preparations.
"Likewise, income that we receive from planting sugarcane is essential for the livelihoods of our family.
"It greatly helps for my children’s education and medication.
"I would like to encourage Waitrose customers to keep buying sugar from Mauritius so that we can continue planting sugarcane and earn our living," says Mrs Soorinah Jagen, member of Camp Diable CCS
