Chobani announces first international distribution

Chobani, the popular-yogurt brand in the U.S., is now international. Beginning this month, they will bring their yogurt, along with their Nothing But Good Philosophy, to Australian and Canadian consumers.

“To take Chobani beyond the U.S. is very exciting for us,” said Hamdi Ulukaya, CEO and Founder of the Norwich, N.Y.-based company. “We’ve had an outpouring of requests from Canadians and Australians alike, and we listened. We hope they’ll like Chobani as much as our American fans do.”

Landing on Australian shores, seven flavors—Peach, Blueberry, Strawberry, Vanilla, Mango, Passion Fruit and Pineapple—of Chobani are now available in Woolworths stores throughout New South Wales.

In Canada, five flavors, including Black Cherry, Strawberry, Peach, Plain and Pomegranate are now available at a variety of Loblaw banner stores in the Greater Toronto Area and Hamilton. Loblaw Companies Limited will serve as the test market retail partner in the Greater Toronto Area for a one-year period.

“Our regional launch in the Greater Toronto Area and New South Wales is the first step towards making Chobani available nationwide in both Canada and Australia,” said Ulukaya.

Chobani’s expansion into Australia and Canada comes on the heels of their announcement to open a second production facility in Twin Falls, Idaho within the next year. Housed on 200 acres of agricultural and industrial land, Chobani plans to invest over $100 million to build a state-of-the-art, high capacity production facility. The brand’s second domestic manufacturing plant will enable consumers to more easily find their favorite Chobani products in stores as well as the brand’s ability to work on new and exciting Chobani product innovations, say company officials.
