Chobani LLC, a Greek yoghurt manufacturer, has announced plans to branch out and expand its product portfolio from June 2014. The expansion will see Greek Yogurt Oats, Chobani Indulgent, Chobani Kids and Chobani Kitchen products added to the company range.

Chobani Kids are said to be snacks with low-fat plain Greek yogurt and reduced sugar, while the Chobani Kitchen products are to be used in meal preparation. They are made with 4% whole milk and are available in a multi-serve format for recipes or a single-serve occasion.

Peter McGuinness, chief marketing and brand officer for Chobani also spoke of the expansion by saying “Our new flavours and formats bring new experiences with Greek Yogurt and deliver on our founding premise of people have taste, they just need more good options”.
