Perin Saint-Ange was established in 1956 on the island of Dique around a close family built on love of the land of their archipelago and follows a school which leads him to leave at the age 17 to Seychelles to fly into a passion that sticks to the skin, agriculture.

He studied at the Agricultural College of Kesteven in Lincolnshire in England and continued his apprenticeship of farm business management in the School of Agriculture of Aberdeen in Scotland.
Perin Saint Ange returned to Seychelles where he works as part of the Seychelles Ministry and oversees all technical aspects of farming in the archipelago.

Following the success of his master's degree in economics from the University of New England, Australia, Perin Saint-Ange was promoted to Principal Secretary of the Ministry of Agriculture in the Seychelles in 1988 where he set out several projects for self-sufficiency of the country in food production and animal farming.
