Soignon goat cheese consumed by French households
80.4% of French households buy goat cheese: half of these choose Soignon. Very much on-trend, goat milk products have, for years now, met with strong success among consumers. Each year, Eurial processes 190 million litres of goat milk, and guarantees that Soignon cheeses are made from 100 % French milk.
"When a mother cannot feed her child from her own breast, she turns to goats for help", said Montaigne.
The nutritional properties of goat milk products mean they are beneficial to those of all ages. They offer calcium, phosphorus, and vitamins, as well as many trace elements (e.g. zinc, iodine).
Their proteins contain all the essential amino acids. Their health benefits are now of interest to researchers: digestibility, antimicrobial properties, antihypertensive, etc. They are the subject of many studies (Source Cniel).
Soignon, the goat cheese specialist
On the shelves, Soignon has market share of 27.3%. This brand, dedicated to goat milk products, offers logs, soft rind cheeses, and non-ripened fresh goat cheese. Sainte-Maure de Soignon is a real success, representing one in seven sales of goat cheese in supermarket self-service sections. (Figures from IRI-GMS panels)
The Soignon range also includes PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) cheeses: Chabichou du Poitou, Pouligny-Saint-Pierre and Sainte-Maure de Touraine.
Cooked by professionals
Industrials in food service (commercial or collective catering) use goat cheese as an ingredient in their preparations.
Eurial offers them a range of pre-cut and frozen (IQF) cheeses: ripened or non-ripened, sometimes breaded, goat cheese is available diced or in round slices of various diameters and weights.
Fresh or frozen goat cheese can thus be included in many recipes: pizzas, prepared dishes, savoury tarts, sandwiches, paninis, salads, etc.
