Explore our sectors: Exceptional Oils, Emotional Terroirs

Discover the exciting journey of the raw materials that give life to our exceptional oils. Since 1972, Émile Noël has been committed to cultivating the best of each fruit, through sustainable channels in France and around the world. Immerse yourself in our history, explore our terroirs, and join us in our commitment to organic, fair-trade and responsible agriculture.

From Terroir to Treasure, a Tradition of Excellence

From our humble beginnings, Émile Noël has always followed a golden rule: “To create exceptional oils, you have to start with exceptional seeds.” This adage guides our relentless quest for the purest, most precious raw materials.

Every day, we venture into the heart of the land where these natural treasures come to life, for there is nothing quite like a fruit or seed that has ripened under our care to extract its most precious treasures.

Back in 1972, Émile Noël led the way by becoming the first oil mill in France to extract essence from organically grown seeds. We were pioneers in solidarity trade, now recognized as fair trade, establishing our first chain in West Africa as early as 1985.

Our commitment to quality and sustainability remains at the heart of our identity, and it is this passion that has given rise to a multitude of sustainable businesses in France and around the world.

pictocertification-biosolidaireBIOPARTENAIRE® – The Camelina industry is a French industry that spans several regions: Creuse, Occitanie and Nouvelle Aquitaine.

We work with a cooperative of 9 farms that grow camelina in crop rotation, located in the Creuse region of France, and which has the exclusive BIOPARTENAIRE® label.

The partnership dates back to 2018, and in 2021, a BIOPARTENAIRE BIOPARTENAIRE® has been initiated at our request for the new harvest.


When we wanted to develop hemp oil, it was an obvious choice to work with experts in the field.

Our hemp comes from two farmers, one in the Aube department, which accounts for a third of European production.

But also in the Creuse, an exceptional area, because the Creuse is more of a livestock and cereal-growing area, but lends itself particularly well to the cultivation of hemp. Which makes this approach by Emile Noël a real innovation.


pictocertification-biosolidaireBIOPARTENAIRE® – La filière Lin is a French network of 9 farms, growing flax in crop rotation on their plots of land, located more precisely in the Creuse region of France. Initiated in 2018, this network of 9 farms will receive the BIOPARTENAIRE® label in 2021 at our request for the new harvest.

Emile Noël has also been working with a cooperative in the Occitanie and Nouvelle Aquitaine regions since 2013. The latter was also awarded the BIOPARTENAIRE® label in 2021.


pictocertification-biosolidaireBIOPARTENAIRE® – The sunflower industry is a French industry, located in the Occitanie region.

Émile Noël buys its produce from a 100% organic cooperative of nearly 1,200 producers.

Emile Noël’s annual purchasing volume is equivalent to the total production of 6 producers.

We work with this cooperative and also support producers in their transition to agro-ecology.

The partnership dates back to 2021 when a BIOPARTENAIRE® label was initiated at our request for the new harvest.


As walnuts are one of the nuts at the heart of French culture, Emile Noel has chosen to work with producers in the Périgord region to develop an exceptional French walnut oil with character.

Lawyer from Guinea

Concerned about the quality of our raw materials, we decided to set up an oil mill employing around ten people in Guinea, in the heart of the avocado fields.
As the Group’s aim is to leave as much added value as possible to the producers, it was decided to build a factory on site.

Sesame from Mali

pictocertification-biosolidaireBIOPARTENAIRE® – Mali was one of the first sectors created by the Emile Noël oil mill through the cultivation of sesame seeds in the 1980s. Strengthened by this shared history with this country, the oil mill wished to create its own foundation in 2014, FONDATION EMILE NOËL MALI in order to perpetuate its exchanges. Today, more than 15 people are employed by the foundation to monitor farming activities and train producers, while ensuring compliance with organic farming specifications.

This chain has been awarded the BIOPARTENAIRE® label, guaranteeing strong commitments to fair and responsible organic farming.
