Our historyABOUT OUR PATHWAY
Looking back at the major steps that built Savéol.
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.
SOCIÉTÉ MARAICHÈRE DE L’OUEST (SMO)
IS BORN, DEDICATED TO MARKETING
PRODUCTION FROM THE TWO COOPERATIVES
SMO REGISTERS THE SAVÉOL BRAND
LA CROIX EIG IS INITIATED, BECOMING SAVÉOL NATURE IN 2013.
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.
