How plum seed oil, once a niche product, has been transformed into a sophisticated food ingredient that fits all menu segments

Plum seed oil (huile vierge de prune) is a specialty oil from south west France pressed from seeds of d’agen prune plums. Our oil gained recognition after it won the golden prize at the 2002 SIAL Paris International Food Show. Plum oil is used to bring "an accent" to sauces and delicately perfumes vinaigrettes and bakery with an almond like aroma.

The plum country

Our farm is located in Pujols, South West France, famous for the typical architecture it inherited from the middle age when it was an important stop on the Way of St James.

Everything old is new again

This pork was unlike anything I have ever had. The meat was succulent and falling apart with a skin so crisp that it snapped when you took a bite. The layer of fat behind the skin had transformed into a velvety layer of flavour.

The beauty inside

For skin care companies, the good marketing image of the plum and the profile of plum oil are a good match.
