Terres Univia was founded in 2015 through ONIDOL (created in 1976) and UNIP (created in 1978) merging. It is an interbranch organisation which represents French oilseed and oil fruit sector (oil seed rape, sunflower, soya, linseed, olive) and French legume seed sector (field pea, faba bean, lupin, lentil, chickpea, alfalfa) interests.
It is an interprofessional association with 3 colleges in its board :
|GROWERS||WAREHOUSING COOPERATIVES AND MERCHANTS||END-USERS|
|FOP||Coop de France Métiers du Grain||GTOM|
|ANAMSO||Synacomex||Coop de France Nutrition Animale|
|FNAMS||Coop de France Déshydratation||Coop de France Déshydratation|
The purpose of Terres Univia is to bring together and represent the professional organisations of these sectors, from production to industrial processing: breeding activities (seed breeders, seed multipliers), crop production, storage activities and industrial transformation (crushing, refining, etc.).
Terres Univia aims to facilitate interactions between professional partners like producers and processors, to undertake activities of collective interest action, and to promote the development and the use of oilseeds and associate products.
Terres Univia is in charge of following market trends, regulatory and food safety information, and statistical information transfer about the French oilseed and legume sector.
Terres Univia also stimulates and supports research programs with external experts, technical institutes such as Terres Inovia and ITERG, universities and national research centers such as INRA, CNRS, INSERM. Terres Univia promotes research projects related to human and animal nutrition, renewable energy and renewable chemistry development. Its expertise extends from R&D actions to dissemination and promotion/communication.
