White Plains, NY—Dannon Foodservice is excited to announce that in addition to creamy-thick Dannon® Oikos®1 yogurts, the beloved yogurt maker has added new Light & Fit® Greek to its flavorful foodservice yogurt portfolio. At 80 calories per 5.3 oz. serving, it’s the lightest Greek nonfat yogurt with fruit on the market. Together, this pair of deliciously creamy Greek yogurts offers operators a way to fulfill consumers’ calls for nutritious foods and grow in conjunction with the Greek yogurt craze.
Not only is Greek yogurt the fastest-growing yogurt segment2—driving overall yogurt category growth,2 Dannon® Oikos® is growing three times faster than the entire Greek yogurt segment.3
It’s no surprise that it’s enjoying such high demand, as Dannon® Oikos® Strawberry and Blueberry 0% fat yogurts beat Chobani® flavors two to one in a national taste test.4 Deliciously creamy and thick, Dannon® Oikos® flavor is achieved through a traditional Greek yogurt-making process.
Customers looking for a light option will love the Greek yogurt revolution of Light & Fit® Greek. Available in a variety of on-trend, fruity flavors, the brand offers several ways to satisfy customers’ cravings for creamy, Greek nonfat yogurt. Now, Light & Fit® Greek is bringing its Vanilla, Strawberry, Blueberry, Pineapple, Cherry and Peach flavors to foodservice so operators can choose from a wide variety of the flavors that are right for their customers.
Both Dannon® Oikos® and Light & Fit® Greek are available in a convenient 5.3 oz. grab-and-go size, and select flavors are available in bulk 32 oz. containers. The 32 oz. back-of-house containers allow operators to incorporate this in-demand yogurt style into parfaits, smoothies, recipes and more.
