Sale to private individuals and professionals

Founded in 1930, this family firm has perpetuated oil-making know-how for three generations. It sells wheel-ground oils (walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, sesame) and first cold-pressed oils.

Its wide product range also includes grape seed, peanut, sunflower, squash, linen, rapeseed, hemp, camelina, poppy, olive and argan oil. These are available in an organic or non-organic version. The range also includes macerates: assemblies of oils and aromatics. All of its oils are in the high-end sector.

Founded and situated in the Centre region of France, an area famed for its walnut growing, the company has high-level know-how in making food oils. It uses meticulous methods based on two processes: traditional (grinding with a stone wheel, heating, pressing with a hydraulic press, decanting and filtering) and first cold-pressing at low temperature.

The company works on the taste and nutritional qualities of the oils, in particular on the balance of omega 3, omega 6 and omega 9.
