Emile Noël has a key word since the creation of his oil mill: to make good oils, you need good seeds. This saying has always guided the company to search for the best raw materials. Thus, Emile Noel goes to the discovery of raw materials at their place of cultivation, to harvest the best of their seed or fruit; allowing it to be the first oil mill in France to grind seeds from organic farming in 1972.The company has been a pioneer of solidarity trade, today called fair trade, with its first sector in West Africa since 1985. Today, this desire is always at the heart of the positioning of the oil mill. This is how several sustainable sectors were born in France and around the world. For all its other products, with or without a sector, Emile Noël's values ​​and commitments are the same: respect of the Earth and respect of human beings to offer the best products.

Emile Noël a un maitre mot depuis la création de son huilerie : pour faire de bonnes huiles, il faut de bonnes graines. Cet adage a donc toujours guidé l'entreprise à la recherche des meilleures matières premières.C’est ainsi qu’Emile Noel part à la découverte des matières premières sur leur lieu de culture, pour en récolter le meilleur de leur graine ou fruit ; lui permettant d'être la première huilerie en France à triturer des graines issues de l’agriculture biologique en 1972.L'entreprise a été une pionnière du commerce solidaire, aujourd’hui appelé commerce équitable, avec sa première filière en Afrique de l’Ouest dès 1985. Aujourd’hui, cette volonté est toujours au cœur du positionnement de l’huilerie.C’est ainsi que sont nées plusieurs filières durables en France et à travers le monde.Pour tous ses autres produits, avec ou sans filière, les valeurs et les engagements d'Emile Noël sont les mêmes : le respect de la Terre et des Hommes pour proposer le meilleur des produits.
