Introducing our automatic triman logo generator

by Kevin Dixie in Regulation

Looking for French Info-Tri Triman recycle logos?

All consumer products sold in France require the Triman Logo since 9 March 2023.  Packaging that is not compliant can no longer arrive in France.  

You cannot simply go to Google and download an image, it must be based on the exact packaging each of your products have.

Our sorting logo simulator demonstrates how Buyerdock delivers a different recycling logo for each individual product. 

Based on the choices you make through the dropdown options, the simulator will create environmental labels that meet both French and Italian compliances*. To help illustrate the complexity of the compliances, if you do change any of the options the simulator will deliver different recycling logo variations. Give it a try on our homepage here (we have built the only automatic France and Italy recycle logo generator in the world)

Buyerdock has an annual licence fee (think of it as recycle logo insurance!) and with each country launching a new recycle logo (often referred to as packaging compliance or environmental label), our consultants work out the nuances, we build them into our tool (Spain are just launching something similar to France but in Spanish, Italy is already law and can be seen by using our recycle logo simulator). A recent user on Buyerdock paid a consultancy over £1m to get 17,000 individual Triman logos.. And the fines are huge for non-compliance..from €15k to prison..(and of course not being able to sell in France or Italy in 2023).

The logos are all different

French Minister Bérangère Couillard was carrying out very public spot checks in supermarkets in March 2023, and now no distributors or retailers can accept products without the Triman logo in France.

CONAI says Buyerdock QR codes are a good idea

As the first company to be approved by GS1 in the UK to deliver 2D barcodes (now called QR codes powered by GS1), we’ve made great strides towards making our QR codes the most Intelligent on the planet. 2D or not 2D is another question, we liken them to i-QR codes (Intelligent QR codes).

New rules on recycle logos for Spain

If your products reach consumers in Spain, whether it be via a retailer, your website or places like Amazon FBA or Ebay, you will need to comply. Our annual EU recycle licence will cover you for Spain, as well as the Triman in France and Italy.

All Amazon sellers need the triman logo if they sell in France

If you are an Amazon seller that ships product to France or Italy either FBA or FBM, you need to ensure your packaging carries the correct recycle logo otherwise you will be at risk of a fine upto €100k or worse up two years in prison according to French law
