Since 1920 a mill has been the heart of Pont-Saint-Esprit, a town nestling between Provence and the Cévennes. For 90 years, this mill has belonged to the Noël family, one of France’s best-known oilmakers.
It all began with olives. Then came the era of diversification, with sunflower, rape, hazelnut, argan, evening primrose, borage, macadamia nut and soya. These raw materials have been grown organically since 1972.
Huilerie Emile Noël’s complete mastery of oil production has prompted the company to diversify further, making soaps – including green Marseille soap – and honey and coconut shampoo, a product of yesteryear that now stars in the new Emma Noël range.
