Biolandes Le Sen

SINCE: 1980

LOCATED IN: LE SEN, LANDES, FRANCE

The head office for our group, Biolandes, is located in Le Sen, in the French department of Landes, in the largest planted forest in Europe. This area is closely linked to the history and values of the founder of Biolandes, who started out using a plant that is emblematic of his region, the maritime pine.

LINES OF BUSINESS: BIOLANDES HEAD OFFICE, MAIN PRODUCTION SITE, R&D, QUALITY CONTROL etc.

The first distillation units were set up at the Le Sen site, which has continued to expand with the business. The technical and industrial facility, spread over more than 35 hectares, is now one of the biggest and best. The site has been fitted with a biomass boiler powered by green waste, most of which is generated during production. Another firm on the site, Biolandes Pin Décor is specialised in the production and sale of natural potting soil and mulch, and leverages plant matter processed on site, further boosting the positive recycling synergy. This collaboration has also been in place since the beginning, in 1980. Closely monitoring operations conducted throughout the world, the site now employs nearly 200 people in production, analysis, development, logistics, purchasing and sales.
