Acknowledged as the leading printing company in the Indian Ocean, Caractère Ltée not only has a highly qualified personnel but also operates with the latest technology enabling it to undertake both commercial work (magazines, brochures, books, calendars, etc.), industrial work (light packaging, boxes, cases, bags, labels, food packaging, etc.) as well as flexography jobs (adhesive labels, PVC sleeves, flexible packaging, wrap-around labels for bottles, flour bags, tea bags, etc.).


Since October 2017, La Sentinelle has taken a strategic stake in MC Easy Freight Co Ltd, one of Mauritius’ leading freight services providers.
