Our History


coopérative

A COOPERATIVE

the bedrock of quality


The SICOLY cooperative (SIca des COteaux du LYonnais) was created in 1962 with the coming together of a number of producers for the purpose of promoting their fruit on the French national market. Today, the SICOLY - SICODIS cooperative group has over 150 member producers who cultivate and harvest 10 000 tonnes of premium quality fruit on 570 hectares of orchards every year.

The cooperative group enjoys a leading position among French players in the production of fresh fruit and is an indispensable supplier to professionals in the field of pâtisserie, restaurants, ice-cream production and bars, with a comprehensive range of frozen and processed fruit.

AUTHENTICITY, EXPERTISE,

the meticulous selection of the very best of our fruit

A TERROIR

Located in the North of the Rhône Valley, the 570 hectares of orchards tended by our member producers lie in the territory of the Coteaux et Monts du Lyonnais, all within a 40 km radius of the cooperative.

The SICOLY - SICODIS group applies every technique respectful of the fruit and the environment, practising sustainable and responsible agriculture.
