Elixens France

Elixens France : creative matterelixens_france_site

In February 2008, Elixens France (formerly Orgarôme) was created from the merger of Elixens Group’s Aromatic Raw Materials (Adrian Industries) and Flavourings operations (Fontarôme). The Flavouring operations have been sold on June 1st 2017.

When it bought out Sanoflore’s raw materials centre in March 2010, Elixens France acquired a distillery in Eyguy Escoulin in the Drôme department. This distillery produces essential oils and hydrolats and is classed as an Organic distillery because its water supply comes straight from a mountain spring. It has 2 processing lines made entirely from stainless steel (stills, tanks and reactors) to process local and regional natural products.
That summer, Elixens France opened a new establishment in Crest, a few kilometres from its distillery, in the heart of natural farmland.
