Who we are

Incorporated in 2001, the HV Group operates mainly in Madagascar and Mauritius. With more than 2,500 employees, it now forms part of the Indian Ocean's top 100 groups. The company is involved in an array of activities across the industrial sector, international trade, distribution and retail, through fast-moving consumer goods, home equipment, multimedia and retail franchises. The Group also operates in the real estate sector.



In the 1970s, Hematlal Veljee started his business, specialised in the trade of textile and haberdashery, in Antananarivo, the capital of Madagascar, his homeland. Driven by his passion for the profession, he demonstrated perseverance despite all the challenges faced by international trade at that time. Later, in the 1990s, he was joined by his two sons, Sanjeev & Roupesh. The excellent reputation of their father gave them access to the necessary resources to develop the family business by diversifying their activities and remaining attentive to the market. After the demise of Hematlal Veljee in 2001, Sanjeev and Roupesh moved to Mauritius, where they set up the Group's headquarters. Since then, HV Group has strengthened its market position by perfecting its core business activities and adapting to new market trends. The values inherited from their father helped Sanjeev and Roupesh transform what was originally a simple shop into a well-established conglomerate.
