The Entrepôt Général de la Champagne was founded in 1890 then took the name of Institut Oenologique de Champagne from 1905. At the time, the IOC was making, packing and selling oenology products, in particular finings, preservatives and stabilisers.

Over the years, the IOC has extended its offering. First in France’s Champagne region, then throughout the rest of the country by setting up oenology analytical laboratories as well as exports by deploying our team of oenology advisors.

In 2008, the IOC joined the  Group, one of the world leaders in developing, producing and marketing yeasts, bacteria and other microorganisms and their derivatives for the baking, winemaking, distilling, brewing, animal nutrition, human health and nutrition, fermentation, pharmacy and agriculture markets.

The IOC’s expansion speeded up in 2011 following the acquisition of  in Italy and a 50% holding in  in Spain.

The IOC is now devising and developing oenology products and supporting winemakers in all of the world’s winemaking regions.

In the future, listening even more to your needs, more cooperative and more creative, the IOC will be offering you more relevant services to address market requirements.
