For over 20 years, LÉA NATURE has contributed to the development of a new model for a more natural, local, organic, affordable, healthful, consumer-friendly, efficient and profitable approach to manufacturing.
BiO’Pôle de Léa is located across from the company headquarters and constitutes a truly innovative initiative that finds its roots in the ideology of our founder. This four-hectare site features two passive solar buildings of 7600 square meters made of 70% wood.
BiO’Pôle de Léa is a perfect example of the bioclimatic architecture of the future: it faces south with an all-wood frame, ecological insulation, earthen plasters, natural coatings, green roofs, photovoltaic panels, a wood furnace, etc.
This haven of peace and quiet is protected by a large Napoleon hedge and offers a landscaped garden covering nearly 2 hectares.
Charles Kloboukoff chose to develop this new initiative to reflect his environmental and social beliefs which are based on his conviction that the natural world plays a significant role in human health and is often threatened by the agrochemical industry. Total funding for this project amounts to Euros 12 million, half of which is provided by LÉA NATURE, and the other half of which is funded through the founder’s family-held holding company.
This new eco-development offers a mix of food options, outdoor activities, sports, and relaxation that are geared towards learning, ecology and the economy.

Areas That Are Open to the Public
The Multisport Stadium – Open to the Public
The gardens invite you to stroll around and learn more about the plants used in LÉA NATURE products, namely thanks to the Zen garden developed around the concept of a large and energizing mandala, the orchard, the vegetable garden (1460 square meters), the greenhouse and the winter garden. These green areas are also designed to foster biodiversity amongst insects and will feature two bee hives and a chicken coop (due to open during 2017).
As a showcase of the values and commitments of the group, BiO’Pôle de Léa aims to play a role in the development of a new world, evolving cultures and changing practices.
