What we do

We create healthy and nutritional sensory experiences. We use grains and cereals to design safe and natural ingredients with unique properties.

We work with the major players in agrifood, pet food and animal nutrition. We work so that they always have what they need to overcome current and future challenges.


By your side

We act in the interests of the consumer by offering healthy, natural and tasty ingredients while being transparent about the source of our products.


We are well aware of the challenges faced by manufacturers, which is why our products are designed to be perfectly adapted to their processes.

The vision of Emmanuel Goujon

“Limagrain Ingredients reveals the natural potential of grain. Created from the merger of Limagrain Céréales Ingrédients and Unicorn grain specialties, Limagrain Ingredients draws its strength from two fundamental beliefs:
Life can be enriched by healthy nutritional experiences. Grain is the cornerstone for well-balanced nutrition.
This is the reason why Clean Label and nutrition are at the core of its ecosystem. From raw material to ingredients, including industrialization processes, we aim to offer delicious, healthy and balanced nutrition.
However Limagrain Ingredients also enjoys a challenge and has innovation at its heart. It focuses its R&D investments and leading expertise on its industrial customers to help them respond to the growing expectations of consumers in a purposeful and winning way.
Limagrain Ingredients naturally innovates, that is what makes us unique, that is our signature.”

Our social and responsible

Governance, business ethics and social engagement

We are actively and sustainably involved in the economic and social life of our local communities. As an example, we develop local cereal selection programmes and we use supplies from local farms in our factories whenever possible.

150 safety-related actions

All employees have signed a safety charter. More than 150 safety-related actions are carried out each year. As an example, safety inspections are carried out by management for all employees to identify the first signs of risks and avoid accidents.

Operational effectiveness

In order to minimise the impact of our activities on the environment through considered consumption of water, energy and raw materials, we have invested in a stalks boiler which heats the raw material left over from our chain.

Innovation et Intelligence collective

Innovation through partnerships or collaboration is at the heart of our strategy and is an important part of our culture. As an example, we have implemented co-development workshops with small groups of 10 people representing every company department to find innovative solutions to our projects or problems through collective intelligence.

Motivation and contribution of all talents

New hires take an orientation course so they can find out about the history of the Group and Limagrain Ingredients. The aim is to help them integrate and understand the challenges facing the company.
Because we believe in the potential of our employees, we help with their professional development by organising sector discovery events, encouraging internal transfers or even by supporting them with home working.


" At Limagrain Ingredients, we highlight the natural benefits of grains and cereals. All our production processes are designed to allow us to offer 100% natural products with various properties. We do not use chemical treatments in our factories; we use various processes such as crushing and extrusion or even thermal processing and high-pressure steam treatment. The command of our chain allows us to be involved from the grain to its transformation. We are able to offer complete traceability to our customers and provide them with safe products with full transparency. Finally, our know-how covers the use of our ingredients in a range of agrifood, pet food and animal feed applications. Our distinctive selling point on the market comes from this know-how, which makes us unique. "
