Petit Billy is the result of a crazy gamble: a plan to set up goat farms across Brittany to promote local distribution and develop the local economy.
The 21 farms are located less than 70km from the dairy, which guarantees high quality, naturally gentle milk.
Petit Billy offers 2 soft goat cheeses: one is plain and the other flavoured with basil. In addition, there is a range of goat milk desserts, available in three flavours.
Petit Billy at a glance
Petit Billy was founded in a small village called Billy located in the Loir et Cher department of France.
The Triballat Noyal family business set up goat farms in Brittany, as close to the dairy as possible, and in close partnership with farmers.
Petit Billy Soft Goat Cheese came into being in Noyal sur Vilaine, with each cheese delicately moulded by hand and wrapped in a natural chestnut leaf.
Petit Billy extended its market offer with its new range of yoghurt, Le Doux Brassé, followed a year later by Plain Goat Milk Fromage Blanc.
The Soft Basil Goat Cheese made its appearance on cheese boards across France.
Local distribution to develop the local economy
Petit Billy plays a role in developing the local economy, in close collaboration with 21 producers in the Rennes region, all of whom are located less than 70km from the dairy.
Local collection reduces CO2 emissions and protects the environment.
Triballat Noyal and its 21 producers are all signatories of a jointly produced “Animal Welfare” charter.
