Biovie is very proud of this new collaboration with Yssé. It is a small plant oil factory from Britanny, which gets its supplies mainly from local sectors and presses its organic seeds on a small scale, in an artisanal way, with a mastery of all the stages of the process.
Origin of seeds: France and mainly Grand Ouest.
Yssé exchanges with organic actors in the sector in order to have a match between the crops and the needs, and works in partnership with groups of organic farmers for the financing of studies in order to relocate certain crops in Brittany. In terms of traceability, for hemp and flax, Yssé can go back to the number of the plot from the organic farmer.
Manufacturing process in 1st cold pressing with a French-made screw press.
The artisanal production enables to:
- adjust the production according to the needs in order to limit stocks
- to adjust the production parameters according to each seed in order to make the best productions without having the obligation of production rate
The storage tanks are equipped with a floating cap system (system identical to the wine preservation) in order to limit oxidation during storage.
For the packaging, Yssé uses recyclable tinplate cans made in France.
In order to guarantee the best quality, the oil is packaged very quickly after pressing. Filling is done with nitrogen injection in order to reduce oxidation during the can storage.
Seeds and oils are analyzed by an external laboratory according to a control plan (microbiology, mycotoxin, heavy metals, acidity, fat content, allergen, dioxin, pah...). The fatty acid profiles (including omega-3 and 6) are made on each type of seed according to the control plan. This enables us to confirm the values indicated on the labels.
Biovie offers the "super oils" of flax and hemp seeds from Yssé.
