French family business Triballat Noyal is taking a future step by choosing SIG filling technology and aseptic carton packs for its Sojasun and Sojade plant-based products.

Triballat Noyal, based in Brittany, likes to do things a little differently and is committed to making products that are healthier for both people and the planet. Choosing SIG filling technology for its plant-based dairy alternatives provides high flexibility and speed. The SIG CFA 812 filling machine, with an output of 12,000 trendy square base carton packs per hour, offers an unmatched number of packaging options for future product launches, yet also saves on utilities such as water and electricity.

SIG’s sustainability roadmap also helped Triballat Noyal to make its decision. The team is fully convinced by key arguments in favor of SIG’s carton packaging, which gives Triballat Noyal the option to use industry-leading sustainable packaging materials.

Initially for the French and Italian markets, Triballat Noyal will offer four new SKUs of its Sojasun brand soy drinks – Calcium, No Added Sugar, Chocolate and Vanilla – in SIG’s combiblocMidi carton packs with the innovative and highly convenient combiMaxx closure. A range of Sojade, a dessert cream brand from Triballat, is also due to be launched in combiblocMidi in 2021.

Blandine Coindet, Beverage Business unit manager at Triballat Noyal, says, “We have a strong passion for plant-based dairy alternatives which help our consumers to enjoy a responsible diet and healthy lifestyle. We have set our sights on producing the food of the future and this includes the right packaging. We choose SIG to offer a coherent, responsible and future proof package, that will enable us to stand out from the competition.”

It is evident that plant-based dairy alternatives are here to stay, with consumers completely reshaping their eating habits. Food and beverage producers such as Triballat Noyal have quickly adapted to expand product portfolios to compete in this fast-growing market.

François Dieulouard, key account manager at SIG, says, “Our close cooperation with Triballat Noyal has provided the best packaging solution for its innovative plant-based products. combiblocMidi is very well received by consumers, from visual appeal and ergonomics to its strong environmental advantages. combiMaxx closure also offers high convenience, optimal product flow, easy handling and spill free storage.”

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
