Avril is an agro-industrial and financial group of the oils and protein sector located in Paris, France, and was founded in 1983.

Avril, originally called Sofiprotéol, was founded in 1983 as a collective farming initiative for French farmers to farm oilseeds (grape, hemp, linseed, olive, etc.) and protein crops (soybean, peanut, pea, quinoa, etc.). In 2015, Sofiprotéol changed its name to Avril after becoming a limited partner with share capital to ensure their independence. These changes lead to the separation of the companies industrial and financial activities, and a restructuring of management and operational legal frameworks.

The company operates to create value in each activity involved in the process of growing grains into final products through organizing industrial and financial activities. Avril integrates French and European agricultural and agro-industrial activity, and actively reinvests profits back into the European agricultural sector.
