Trimona launches Superfood range

New York-based Trimona Bulgarian Yogurt has added a new Superfood range.

“Trimona introduced America to Bulgarian-style yogurt ten years ago, and now we’ve gone to the next level of probiotic dairy evolution, or as we call it: Yogurt 2.0,”​ said Trimona Bulgarian Yogurt founder Atanas Valev.

mar new TRIMONA

The new range features products called Refresh, Protect, and Revive.

Protect contains 5,000 milligrams of powdered organic açaí, maca root, Aronia, beetroot, lucuma and monkfruit; Refresh contains 5,000 milligrams of powdered organic matcha tea, maca, lucuma, Spirulina, Chlorella and monkfruit; and Revive contains 5,000 milligrams of powdered organic maca, lucuma, mesquite, turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, black pepper and monkfruit.

The new Superfood range also features ProViotic, a bacterium isolated from a snowdrop flower and grown in a vegetable juice. Vegan, organic and allergen free, ProViotic is scientifically proven to be a powerful pathogen inhibitor.

Trimona uses Greiner Packaging’s 32oz and 5oz K3 pack for its plain Trimona Bulgarian Yogurt; and a 5oz for its new Superfood range. The K3 light-weight thermoformed cup is made from polypropylene (PP) and uses up to 33% less material than a conventional direct-printed, thermoformed cup of the same size. It is wrapped with a cardboard outer layer, made from virgin board. The K3 packaging solution has an improved CO2​ footprint and can be recycled, as the cardboard and plastic can be easily separated.

The 32oz Trimona Bulgarian Yogurt K3 pack is topped by Greiner Packaging’s new IML 409 (116mm) diameter lid. The lids and labels are monomaterial, both made from PP, the same as the K3 cup.

The outer cardboard wrapper, which can be removed for recycling, can be printed on the reverse and this has created a marketing and communication tool for Trimona.

“The K3 pack has many advantages but also offers the chance to talk directly to our end users,”​ Atanas said.

“We use it to tell people about the history, heritage and science behind our traditional Bulgarian yogurt, and the genuinely good-for-you wellness benefits of our Superfood range.”

Lurpak goes Light with new block butter

Arla is set to launch a new light butter to the Lurpak Lighter range in the UK.

mar new lurpak

Laura Butler, spokesperson for Lurpak, said, “A key barrier we see in the category is that consumers often believe that lower fat means unnatural. As the number one brand in the category, we want to tackle this and offer shoppers a new block butter product that is lower in fat and contains only three natural ingredients.

“As the Champion of Good Food, Lurpak continues to drive category value, delivering new innovation to shelf, bringing new shoppers into the brand and driving trade up.”

The launch follows the Lurpak Butterbox innovation, which hit shelves in late 2019. A recyclable and recloseable box that eliminates the mess associated with traditional foil, Butterbox has delivered more than £3m retail value sales, a third of which have been incremental to the block butter sector.

Available in a slightly salted 250g variant, new Lurpak Lighter block will be available from April in Morrisons, Waitrose, Ocado and Amazon with Sainsbury’s in May.
