The Sofiprotéol Group is moving forward and becomes the Avril Group

In 2009, Oleon was integrated in the French Sofiprotéol Group, a strong financial and industrial organization in the vegetable oils and proteins sector with activities in food, feed, biofuels and oleochemistry.

The group is now introducing a new governance model and a new organisational structure, in order to bolster its long-term independence. By changing it’s legal and financial structure, a clearer distinction is made between the industrial activities and the activities of the Avril Group’s financing and development company.

This historic step in the Group’s development is accompanied by a new name and a new visual identity: the Avril Group.
This change enables the consolidation of the Group and improves its visibility, while providing it with improved access to new financing in order to drive its development.
