Artisanal Nougat Packaged by Arnaud Soubeyran with Four Schib Flow Wrappers
ARNAUD SOUBEYRAN, the origins of which date back to 1837 starting with the marriage between talented confectioner Mr. Arnaud and Miss Soubeyran, is the most ancient producer of traditional nougats in Montélimar, France. Run by the family’s third generation, the firm has nowadays broadened its range of confectionery and shares its know-how within the charming atmosphere of a museum entirely dedicated to nougat.
For 15 years, ARNAUD SOUBEYRAN has packaged its Nougats, Calissons, Marshmallow and Pralines with three Schib Flow Wrappers (a brand of BW Flexible Systems) and it has just recently purchased its fourth Schib, a new CO 50 that will soon be installed. Didier Honnore, Director of ARNAUD SOUBEYRAN, declares “Schib machines have always supported us efficiently, fully meeting our need to pack a wide range of sweets, biscuits, marshmallow and pastry. We are really satisfied, the machines are very flexible, reliable and easy to clean. Furthermore, they are backed up by a flawless after-sales service. No doubt, all of these pluses led us to choose Schib once again when we had to purchase our fourth packaging machine. Actually, this one will be an advanced, new generation CO50, featuring an appealing design coupled with even higher performances.”
The CO50’s rotary motion twin jaws, operated by 3-axis drive technology, will allow speeds of up to 200 ppm. The machine is equipped with motorized film pre-feed, reel run out sensor, pre-printed film registration, and many other options.
Originally brown in color, made of honey, spices and walnuts, ‘Nux Gatum’ has spanned centuries from the ancient times up to present days. Its journey from the East to Greece led it to Marseille where it set in under the name of ‘Nougat’ in the XVII century, among the 13 most typical Provencal desserts. By going up the Rhône, a determining stop in Montélimar changed the brown color of this home-made confectionery into the white one and the walnuts into almonds. Widely exported and appreciated all around the world, this popular and nice delicacy connected to the memories of festivals and holidays still remains a Provencal sweet that cannot be forgotten once tasted.
