Avril's mission is to create long-term value in the oils and proteins sectors, thus contributing to better nutrition for people and the preservation of the planet. This sustainable development strategy was introduced at the Group's very creation to respond to its shareholders' objectives, particularly farmers. It was subsequently structured with precise targets and indicators.
In addition to its financial objectives, Avril has set indicators for each of its business lines. These measure their contribution to the development of the sectors (added value, job creation, the use of France's raw materials, etc.) and the Group's social responsibility (food production, greenhouse gas emission assessments, development in emerging countries, etc.). Thanks to its chain organisation, Avril has available levers for action at every level of the value chain.
