- About Us
Why here and now?
Lokals.mu stems from the conviction that Mauritius is a land full of opportunities and expertise awaiting harvest. Recent events have shown us the importance of sustaining a robust local economy less dependent on imported goods and more supportive for our local makers and growers. They are our family, neighbours, friends, or simply our local vendors of choice: now is the time to give them a voice.
What is Lokals.mu ?
Lokals.mu is the first Mauritian community-driven marketplace entirely free for local makers and growers to display their products and brands nationwide. At Lokals.mu, we intend on improving the livelihoods of Mauritians by providing "Made in Mauritius" food and products that are healthy, sustainable and affordable to our People. And all while creating employment and fair pay to our expanding network of local makers and growers.
How do I sign up as a Merchant?
The Marketplace allows any Mauritian to start selling products online on the day they sign up for a store on Lokals.mu, at zero cost! To empower the Mauritian community, we have made the vendor sign up process quick and easy to use because we think that anyone should have the opportunity to sell lokal online. After approval, the vendor is assigned its own store where it will showcase its brand, its products, its customer reviews & ratings as well as its FB and Instagram pages. It has never been so easy for Mauritians to gain instant visibility for free. There is no contract to sign up or sign out; you have the keys to your store and you can withdraw your funds on the day your customers get your delivery.
We are clear, we only ask for a 10% commission for our vendors (more details in our Merchant Terms & Conditions).
You should expect to find all your favourite local products online.
As Mauritians, we know the struggle of finding our favourite “zasar mang”; “brede mouroug” or “balié coco”. Our local favourites are currently drowning in a market crowded with products from all over the world. It is with our fellow Mauritians at heart that we have designed the Lokals.mu experience and our vision to provide a reliable supply of local products at a fair price. Upon sign up, our customers can manage their orders, rate & review products, save products in their wishlist and get personalised recommendations. You will never miss out on that delicious “zasar mang” and all the other Mauritian delicacies arriving on lokals.mu and to your doorstep!
