"We have been producers of essential oils in Puimoisson for several generations, and my son is now establishing himself up as well. The flame won’t go out any time soon. It's a true family business.
I have been a cooperator since my establishment and president since 2011. I quickly understood the importance of the collective. The cooperation is part of who I am. This is why I wanted to become president. I wanted to devote myself to the cooperative and my colleagues. I am also convinced that we have a role to play in the development of our territory.
I am for an agriculture that respects decision rights. The cooperative allows us to take control. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and am very fond of innovation to get the job done right.
I am very present in the cooperative, but I also spend time in my fields. This is essential for me. To be a good president, you have to be a good farmer !" "
Ambre PELISSIERSales Director
I joined the SCA3P in March 2022, after a career of more than 10 years in the sales function, including 9 years within the McCormick Group (Ducros & Vahiné brands) in the Sales Department.
I am in charge of managing the relationship with our customers by responding to various tenders, conducting negotiations and prospecting new markets.
I am also in charge of marketing strategy, communication, and co-direction through management, the implementation of new projects and the representation of the structure to the authorities of the profession.
I have at heart to build long-term partnerships with our customers, to meet their needs, while developing the sales of the cooperative and putting my know-how at the service of our member producers. My motto: "alone we go faster, together we go further".
Romain CANSIÈRETechnical Director
"After attending the Interprofessional Technical Institute for Perfume, Medicinal, Aromatic and Industrial Plants (ITEIPMAI), I joined SCA3P as an agricultural technician.
Little by little, we realized that I was doing more and more quality control in view of customer demand. A quality manager position was therefore created in 2019. My role is quite broad and covers everything related to quality and product standards. I handle essential oil essentier samples. In the distilleries, I control the production and respond to requests for traceability.
To meet customer specifications, I check the compatibility of essential oils for blends. In the field, I manage all the technical aspects and support clients with regard to regulations with Nathalie.
In addition, I have a broad view of what is going on in the cellar and I establish procedures. I also help Maxime to support producers who want to get into new crops."
"After several internships at the cooperative, I was hired in September 2019 to take charge of all technical support for production.
I make recommendations to producers, for example concerning phytosanitary products. I advise them on cultural practices, for example for starting new crops.
I also manage the pooling of crop sites in conjunction with various partners, especially for immortelle flowers and coriander. I also monitor crops for the presence of pests in view of grower intervention.
I can also make recommendations for planting based on requests made to the cooperative or requests from producers by helping them to set up new plantations. I maintain the link between the producers and the cooperative."
Nathalie SORSANASales assistant
“I have worked at the cooperative for over 20 years and served in many different positions.
I was first a secretary, then I was trained in accounting, and today I manage transport, order tracking, and inventory with Romain and Alexis.
I am also in charge of re-entry which usually takes place in September. I coordinate production delivery with producers so that they don’t all come at once.
Another aspect of my job is that I handle customer orders and liaise with the cellarman to handle those orders.
Upon customer approval, I request samples from Romain before launching production with the cellarman.”
"Having previously managed silos at a grain cooperative, getting hired at SCA3P meant switching from durum wheat grains to essential oils.
I arrived in 2018, and after being trained by my predecessor, I was able to take over cellar operations. I receive essential oils from members and then constitute “communelles”, which are blends of several batches of the same natural essence.
I then apply the processes put in place to meet customer demand: filtration, blending, inerting to prevent oxidation and improve storage, brewing, etc.
Once the customer has approved the sample, I prepare the order, package it according to the quantity ordered, and label it in accordance with storage and transport regulations. I also assign it a lot number for traceability."
