Gama Innovation Award: Vigor Savoury Greek Yoghurt with Croutons

Gama Innovation Award: Vigor Savoury Greek Yoghurt with Croutons

Gama Innovation Award – Product

MANCHESTER – 22nd March 2016: The Gama Innovation Award – Product for March goes to a launch that gives in-vogue greek yoghurt a new savoury spin – Vigor Savoury Greek Yoghurt with Croutons.

Purportedly addressing the lack of “snacks with health appeal on the market”, Vigor Savoury Greek Yoghurt with Croutons is a new offering in Brazil from dairy firm Vigor oriented around the tastes of the Mediterranean, with the first variety featuring black olive yogurt and the second coming with a parsley and chive flavour. In each case, a serving of croutons is presented in a transparent domed lid, akin to the the more conventional combination that sees sweet yoghurt frequently packed together with a granola topping as an on-the-go snack.

Gama editorial director Tom Warden said: "Vigor Savoury Greek Yoghurt shows how companies can not just tap into existing successful product trends, but actively reinterpret them to offer new benefits or target new occasions. Vigor’s idea enables it to draw more heavily on greek yoghurt’s Mediterranean associations, both in terms of its innovative savoury flavours and the perceived health benefits of the Mediterranean diet".
