Looking back at the major steps that built Savéol.

1974

COMMERCIAL ALLIANCE BETWEEN THE BREST MARKET GARDENING CONSORTIUM (GMB) AND COOPERATIVE LA PRESQU’ÎLE

A handful of visionary leaders from Coopératives de la Presqu’île and the Brest Market Gardening Consortium created Savéol - “sunrise” in Breton. What was their aspiration? To concentrate the offer and take the valuation of their products all the way.

Savéol cultivates “the passion of perfection”. On the agricultural ground, market gardeners set out as pioneers in PBI (Integrated Organic Protection) by creating their own insect farming operation to naturally protect their crops, an initiative that is still unique in France in a production consortium.
