Publication of the 2017 Activity and Sustainable Development Reports

The Activity and Sustainable Development Reports for the Avril Group are now available.

They highlight the important events that marked the life of the Group in 2017 in line with its missions, which are to create sustainable value in the vegetable oils and proteins sector, thus contributing to better foods for humans and preservation of the planet.

The reports focus on the following main areas:

  • The principles underpinning Avril: the Group’s ’DNA’, a review of its financial performance and its governance model.
  • Highlights of the year, seen in terms of the challenges and stakes that fashion the Group’s actions in response to the major food, environmental and societal issues that it needs to address.
  • A full panorama of the Group’s activities: by Sofiprotéol, its finance and development arm, and by the five Business Lines which from plants to animals cover all activities in the oils and proteins sector.
  • Highlights and key achievements which contributed in 2017 to the Group's sustainable development commitments.

Jean-Philippe PUIG, CEO of the Avril Group states: "In a year of contrasts, we and all our colleagues and partners in the sector focused on pursuing our transformation while reaffirming our agricultural, territorial and collective values.

More than ever, our sectoral organization – from grain to the finished product – demonstrated its ability to respond to the current and future challenges faced by our activities. It is only by drawing value from this model that we will be able to prepare efficiently for the future and open up paths towards new, long-term and sustainable markets for agricultural sectors wherever we operate.”
