Improving and protecting the Industry
Improving and protecting the Industry

Welcome to B.E.O.A.

The B.E.O.A. was formed in 1978, for the purpose of being a forum between the Essential Oils
Industry and the British and European governments, with the aim to improve and protect
the Industry, which today also includes, Aroma Chemicals, Absolutes and Oleoresins.

Our purpose is to guide our members by giving assistance and share our knowledge on the ever increasing legislation our industry faces. Our members are from the flavour and fragrance industry engaged in import, export, purchases, sales, production and manufacture of Essential Oils, Aroma Chemicals, Absolutes & Oleoresins.
