The development of the molasses block technology in Mauritius has dealt up, to now, with block formulation and testing of blocks to determine daily intake. The next phase will have to deal with large scale manufacture, animal performance evaluation and marketing. The technology is being used in a number of African countries and results indicate that the molasses block technology is not a simple case of direct technology transfer; it has to bear with country and intra-country specificities. If the technology is to be further developed and gain wider acceptance among farmers, technical, marketing and financial support will have to continue for a further period and international aid institutions will have to play a key role.
