Chobani Named Official Yogurt Served To Children Across State
Saturday, July 27, 2013
Chobani will be the official yogurt served to children across the state in a new pilot program to offer healthier options to students.
The Chenango County-based yogurt producer will be the yogurt of choice in the USDA pilot program to serve Greek yogurt in school lunches.
Earlier this month, New York was chosen as a test state. Students will start seeing Chobani yogurt in the lunch line in the fall.
Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand and Congressman Richard Hanna were part of the group who led the effort to bring the pilot program to New York and for it to include New York yogurt producers.
