PROTECTING NATURE AND BIODIVERSITY

We are continuing to support the transition towards more energy-efficient forms of agriculture that are more respectful of biodiversity: in fact, this year the Vrai brand joined the 1% for the Planet club.

Founded in 2002, this movement brings together responsible companies from around the world, all concerned with environmental protection. Each brand participating commits to handing over at least 1% of its annual turnover: this will be donated to environmental organizations that carry out operations to protect nature.

It's from this perspective that Triballat Noyal pledged its support to the Adage 35, projects, an association of producers committed to sustainable farming practices, and the eco-pollination project: installing beehives on the meadows of our organic producers'.
A dozen projects have been set up to protect nature and biodiversity.

Looking after our cows better with essential oils, an astonishing yet effective approach!

A project carried out as part of 1% for the Planet

A group of farmers, in search of independence and alternatives to antibiotics that they found increasingly ineffective, focused in 2008 on the use of essential oils in cattle to prevent certain infections. It was the start of training and trials in farms and in the laboratory (ISAE).

The initial results were conclusive, they all now use essential oils as their first choice and over half no longer use antibiotics to treat clinical mastitis in their cows.

These pioneers of bovine aromatherapy are also more than happy in terms of:

    • ethics,
    • economics "at 2-5 Euros per treatment, it's worth trying before antibiotics",
    • racticality "10 drops on the spine morning and evening for seven days and that's it!"
    • animal welfare and the independence they have: "what I like most with essential oils is that you're in control of the treatment. With antibiotics, you inject, you separate the milk and you wait praying that it gets better. With the oils, you spot the symptoms of mastitis, you choose the protocol, you adapt it depending on the results".

The cows seem to have quickly got used to these gentle methods "They seem to like it! And plus, there's no need to bother penning them in or annoying them with an injection".

Some feel there is a "lower recurrence". Aromatic treatments now extend well beyond mastitis (limping, diarrhoea, coughs, reproductive issues ...).

Today, the results are very satisfactory from the point of view of the farmers who are reclaiming the health of their herds, and they see their cows differently, because they can treat the cause of more diseases.

However they are waiting for "scientists" to take ownership of the work carried out, recognize the results, and be able to explain them.

WORKING FOR HEALTHIER FOOD

In 2013, Triballat Noyal founded the Olga Triballat institute with the aim of putting food to work for sustainable health. By sustainable health we mean human health, of course, but also the health of our planet, as an intrinsic link to good sustainable health for us and future generations.

This endowment fund seeks to understand the impact of plant-based food and organic farming on human health and the planet.

The institute also aims to circulate the knowledge acquired to make it easier to apply it in everyday life.

3 main tasks were defined to reach this goal:

  • Support research;
  • Disseminate knowledge;
  • Act in the field.


To carry out these tasks, the Institute has established a multidisciplinary scientific advisory board whose role is to start thinking about the general direction to take and to study the project application files.

OUR OTHER PROJECTS FOR THE FUTURE

 

We are taking part in projects to constantly improve organic transformation, particularly through the Bioentreprisedurable® process drawn up by Synabio (Organic Companies’ Union). The reference document was updated by Synabio members in 2014 and is based on precise, objective and measurable societal responsibility criteria. These are structured around central aspects of the ISO 26 000 standard and at the same time uphold the defining characteristics of the organic sector: responsibility, environment, loyalty, quality, transparency, local development, etc.
• For further information, see the Synabio page presenting the process. 

Triballat Noyal is one of the members of the Contemporary Culinary Centre that opened its doors in April 2013. The centre, based in Rennes, is a platform for joint innovation for new culinary uses. In other words, they invent the food of tomorrow!

The company also participated in the development the Eco-hemp Space, which aims to revitalize the hemp industry in Ille & Vilaine, a historical site that at one time produced hemp that was used to make boat sails.

Times change and nowadays the plant is used as an insulator or a delicious dessert.
