Saveol is the trademark belonging to the Coopérative maraîchère de l'Ouest, a French agricultural cooperative. It brings together 125 vegetable growers from the Brest region and especially from Plougastel-Daoulas.

In 1974, two formerly competing cooperatives, the Brest Vegetable Garden Group and the Presqu'île, launched joint marketing initiatives, leading to the creation of Société Maraîchère de l'Ouest in 1980, whose headquarters are located in Plougastel-Daoulas and created the "Savéol" ("dawn" in Breton) brand in 1981. In 1993, a number of tomato growers from the Val Nantais joined the company (from which they exited in 2014). In 2004, the cooperatives merged to create the Agricultural Cooperative Society (SCA) SAVÉOL, which in 2015 became the Agricultural Horticultural Cooperative (CMA) SCA SAVÉOL.
