French industrial leader in oilseed processing
Saipol is the French leader 🇨🇵 in the processing of rapeseed and sunflower seeds and one of the European leaders in the crushing and refining of vegetable oils and the production of biodiesel.
A subsidiary of the Avril Group, Saipol develops value-added solutions for its customers and the most demanding citizens, by marketing vegetable oils and derivatives, protein-rich meals, and low-carbon renewable energies (Diester® biodiesel, Oleo100).
Saipol was created in 1983 by Sofiprotéol (which became Avril in 2015) in order to restructure a competitive industrial tool, which is essential for the future of the French oilseed industry.
Saipol is a pillar of the French oilseed industry.
By developing markets for vegetable oils and oil meals, Saipol ensures that rapeseed and sunflower crops provide a fair remuneration to farmers through the sale of their seeds.
A player in the development of Diester biodiesel since the 1990s, Saipol is now developing new solutions and specialities from oilseed, in line with social expectations regarding food and low-carbon energy.
