24 March 2011
412 former employees of Harel Frères Group were given a plot of land each, under their Voluntary Retirement Scheme (VRS). The ceremony of the draw of lots under the VRS II and ERS was held on the 24th of March 2011 in the presence of Cyril Mayer, Managing Director of Harel Frères Group and various Ministers.
It was in the presence of Cyril Mayer, the Minister of Agro-Industry and Food Security and the Minister of Environment and other personalities that 306 former employees of Harel Frères Limited, 80 from Belle Vue Sugar Milling Co Ltd and 26 from Mon Songe Limited draw the ownership of a plot of land in various regions in the North of the island. These employees had voluntarily terminated their employment contract and opted for VRS II and ERS in December 2007. It was a moment of great emotion for those who waited long to be property owners.
