by | 12 Jun 2023 | Life in Mauritius, News, Our advice

In its ongoing quest to control the effects of inflation, the Mauritian government has just launched a revolutionary new application called MOPRI. The aim of this application is to enable users to compare the prices of products at different local sales outlets, providing a valuable tool for Mauritian consumers.

The launch of MOPRI on May 18, 2023 is the result of a collaboration between Verde Frontier Solutions Ltd, the Ministry of Commerce and Consumer Protection, and the Ministry of Information and Communication Technologies. This partnership is part of the Mauritius Research and Innovation Council’s public sector transformation program.This partnership is part of the Mauritius Research and Innovation Council’s public sector transformation program. The application allows users to create a basket of products for systematic comparison each month, offering the possibility of comparing the prices of over 450 of the most widely consumed products, in more than 50 different outlets across the island.

In addition, MOPRI provides a list of products whose prices are controlled by the Government, such as bread, rice, flour, multi-purpose kerosene, gasoline, gas, gas oil, onions and potatoes. This feature enables users to report any anomalies, such as the sale of a controlled product at a price higher than that stipulated by law.

The launch of MOPRI is the government’s response to mitigate the effects of the economic crisis. Minister Balgobin presented this project as the second initiative in the public sector transformation program. The first initiative aimed to foster creative collaborative projects, evaluating new approaches and technologies from start-ups and SMEs to optimize procedures and improve service delivery in the public sector.

With the launch of MOPRI, the Mauritian government has set itself several important objectives. Firstly, it aims to inform consumers and help them make informed choices when making their purchases, at a time of high inflation. In addition, the application ensures that local outlets respect the price freeze on essential products. Finally, the precise analytical reports generated by the application will be used to inform evidence-based policy-making.

Step 1: Select a category or search for a specific product using the search bar.

Step 2: Select the desired product from the available variants.

Step 3: Check the product price.

And that’s all there is to it!
