The cup is made of polystyrene (PS) foil and features a curvilinear square bottom, which makes it easier to spoon out the yogurt.
IMA Erca worked with Triballat-Noyal to create a modern design for the cup that would draw consumer attention.
Erca EF 320L FFS machine
For the product relaunch, Triballat utilized an IMA Erca EF 320L Form-Fill-Seal (FFS) machine, which represented an increase in production capabilities from previous FFS equipment – a move that mirrored the dairy’s heightened goals in the organic segment.
The EF 320L FFS Machine can process upwards of 20,000 cups per hour at 18 to 30 cycles per minute, and has a maximum forming depth of 100mm.
It is available in clean, ultra clean, and aseptic formats. Triballat is using the FFS machine for ultra-clean hygienic operations, which incorporates a Class 10 laminar flow system or tunnel suitable for sanitization, a Class 100 laminar flow system over the lidding foil zone and machine inlet, an UVC area for lidding foil and a bacteriological filter for the forming air.
IMA Erca’s EF Series of form-fill-seal machines are designed to fill a pasty-to-liquid products at different outputs and hygiene levels, including aseptic filling.
