About us

PERPETUER TRADITION

The creation of Huilerie La Tourangelle - formerly known as Huilerie Croix Verte - dates back to the end of the 19th century, when Mr. Morillon and Mr. Bechet founded a small artisanal horse-drawn mill to produce walnut oil in the small town of Saumur (represented by the town’s iconic castle on the La Tourangelle logo!).


During this period, the Loire was lined with artisanal mills that toasted and extracted oil from nuts, hazelnuts, almonds, olives and other fruits and seeds harvested by local farmers. La Tourangelle is one of the few oil mills to continue this tradition. Over the next century and a half, the company perfected its production processes and acquired technologies that were always in-tune with its historical know-how and production methods.


A family business, Huilerie Croix Verte is now owned by the Kohlmeyer family, which, driven by a passion for quality oils and entrepreneurship, has been the main driver of La Tourangelle’s tremendous development. It is Heinz Kohlmeyer, the father, who, since the beginning of the 90’s has transformed the oil mill into a dynamic company, meeting the strictest criteria for quality and establishing worldwide distribution.
 

FEED BODY AND SPIRIT

With our craftsmanship and natural products, we preserve the nutrients our bodies and minds need to grow and stay healthy.

THE PLEASURE OF AROMAS AND PERFUMES

Since its creation, La Tourangelle has set for itself the task of “exalting the senses.”

Cooking is playing with aromas and scents to make them sing in unison within a single bite. To make oil is to preserve the purest aromas of every fruit and of every seed, to maintain the shades they exhale and to stir up the sensors of the palate. La Tourangelle has expanded its palette of singular oils to help transform the ordinary into the extraordinary.

We are convinced that you will find all of this in our oils: a marriage of passion and perfumes.

 

Awakening the Senses

With our oils, we want to awaken the senses at work when we eat a good meal: the feeling of communion that we feel around a good table, the satisfaction of the host facing his feasting guests, the happiness of parents who see their children enjoy a balanced meal, the pleasure of the cook in front of his own dish, the joy of gourmet chefs sharing their culinary discoveries, the pleasure provided by the effect of a single ingredient in a small, daily dish ... The exaltation of the senses by the food that makes us happy and radiant.
