The "Chobani" Yogurt Story

alkapal Jul 6, 2012 03:36 AM

I found this interesting to learn about how Chobani got its beginnings -- a Turk bought an old Kraft yogurt factory….. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001...

      I remember when the dairy Mgr. mentioned the shortage and the shortfall; that the stores couldn't keep up with demand. What do you think has been the reason for the popularity of Chobani's brand over the other versions being sold?

          Our local upstate New York Hannaford was constantly putting a small sign on the shelf letting people know that the product will be restocked asap.

          Of course, that huge tractor trailer accident - dumping the yogurt all over the highway a few weeks ago - wasn't good news. Must hire better drivers...

            I wasn't aware of the tractor trailer accident dumping yogurt all over the highway, breadchick. No reports of people arriving en masse with spoons to help deal with the recovery :)

            Was it a Chobani truck?

              Dunno about the quality of the drivers, but the place where the truck wrecked is called Kamikaze Curve by the locals for a reason. :) My mother lives in the area near where the wreck happened, there are wrecks there ALL the time.

            Give me Strauss full-fat organic European style any day. Cleaner rivers will thank you, too, though the guys being paid to move all that whey around might not.

              I really like Voskos Honey Greek Yogurt, although the flavor variety in Chobani is great.
