Innovation and new products
Research and innovation are key to Sofiprotéol’s strategy. They make it possible to develop the industry’s existing activities and locate new markets.
The rise of “vegetable bio-refining”
The Sofiprotéol Group’s forecasting and innovation activities have gradually come to be organized around the global concept of “vegetable bio-refining”. This new type of industry relies on cutting-edge technologies to produce chemicals, biofuels, energy, agri-materials, as well as food and ingredients from vegetable-based raw materials. Sofiprotéol and its subsidiaries have explored all of these areas.
A partnership strategy
To develop new products and procedures, Sofiprotéol forms partnerships with the top players in every field. That’s why the Group teamed up with the SunnCo. Group to help agri-food companies and grain collection organizations with photovoltaic panel installations. The Group also partnered with Maestria to develop vegetable paints.
