Have you heard of Chobani Greek Yogurt? Well you’re about to, as this number 1 selling and much-loved yogurt brand in America, is now launching in Australia. Aren’t we lucky they picked us…out of all the places in the world they could expand?
Chobani has a unique nutrition profile, innovative, all-natural flavours and a thick, creamy deliciousness that makes you go “oh wow”, when you find out all products are fat-free or 98% fat-reduced. We caught up for coffee today in Melbourne with Chobani’s Registered Dietitian, Nicki Briggs, to bring you this hot, food flash post. Listen to the inside scoop in our podcast :
Press play and listen to our interview with Nicki Briggs, Registered Dietitian and Director of Communication for Chobani Greek Yogurts:

Chobani yogurt will be first available in Woolworths stores throughout New South Wales for $2.29/170g RRP.

Make sure you connect with Chobani on facebook (they have over 350,000 active fans) and twitter @chobani, they can’t wait to hear how you like their “nothing but good” philosophy. Chobani are very good listeners and rely heavily on their fans for feedback. They’re already being influenced by down under and are introducing a passionfruit flavour to our North American neighbours. Let’s see if they are just as passionate about this seeded fruit as we are?
