The Soup’idéale facility in Pas-de-Calais area employs a team of 48 people. Soup’idéale processes 12,000 tons of vegetables to produce nearly 20,000 tons of delicious soups, either fresh or in cartons and bottles ! Organic products generate 25% of annual sales, making Soup’idéale the leading manufacturer of organic soups in France.
Thanks to the company’s know-how and its mastery of pasteurization and sterilization processes, Soup’idéale pursued its development and expansion into new markets, with the introduction of UHT-processed soup packs.
In 2007, the first organic soup recipes were developed for the food service industry.
In 2011, in partnership with Tetra Pak, Soup’idéale installed a packaging line dedicated to this convenient format, a manufacturing approach that served to complete the pasteurization and sterilization processes.
Soup’idéale joined Léa Nature in 2019, and both companies share the same CSR values and commitments, including the objective of reducing the environmental impact of their activities.
