In search of new industrial processes


  • Eurial, precursor to IQF

In 1997, Eurial perfected IQF (Individually Quick Frozen) technology to precision-slice a product using ultrasound before quick individual freezing. Frozen cheese, in slices or cubes, offers many advantages such as ease of handling, regularity of weight and cleanness of slices, as well as taste and texture that are identical to that of a fresh product. 

Used without prior defrosting, IQF cheese is particularly well-suited to catering professionals: it can be used as an ingredient for sandwiches, pizza, salad, etc. {C}



Today, the range includes around one hundred references

Each year, Eurial invests million in modernizing its production facilities.

Designing the products of tomorrow

Soignon: a strong range of products

Eurial anticipate how its customers are set to evolve (changes of taste, new consumption modes, etc.) to imagine the cheeses of tomorrow. Spreadable goat cheese, low-fat cheeses and creams have been introduced in recent years. More recently, Soignon has innovated with grated goat cheese, low-salt mini-logs, cubes for use as nibbles and slices of goat cheese for sandwiches.

The Soignon range has almost 50 references (more than 10 of which are in yoghurts and desserts) and launches several new products each year.

Tailor-made for industrials

A recipe for each customer! Eurial comes up with tailored recipes to provide its industrial customers with cheeses that perfectly match a precise specification.


Dedicated to professionals, the Maestrella range from Eurial specializes in mozzarellas and pizza cheeses.
