The Asian market is served by the Australian plant which ships single-serve cups of plain and flavored yogurts and multiserve containers of plain yogurt.

April 16, 2014

Chobani Coconut 6ozGreek yogurt processor Chobani said today it has begun exporting to Singapore, Malaysia and Panama. The New Berlin, N.Y.-based dairy processor also has a plant in Idaho and currently sells in Australia, where it has a third manufacturing facility.

The Australia plant will ship single-serve cups of plain, blood orange, blueberry, honey, mango, raspberry, passion fruit and strawberry, as well as multiserve containers of plain yogurt to Asia, the company said. The plant produces 25,000 cases a day. Chobani stated it is one of the biggest yogurt manufacturers in Australia.

The company ranks 32 on the Dairy 100, Dairy Foods’ annual list of the largest dairy processors based in North America. It reported $1 billion in revenues in 2012. (The 2013 edition of the Dairy 100 has not yet been released.)

In a statement, David Denholm, President and COO Chobani, said, “Asia and Latin America have untold possibility for Chobani and our expansion in these regions furthers our business opportunities and builds on our founding mission to provide better food for more people. “We've had tremendous success in the United States and Australia and we’ll be using our manufacturing hubs to expand our global presence and reach new fans who have been asking for nutritious, delicious Chobani made with only natural ingredients.”

Latin American and Caribbean markets will receive multiple flavors and formats from Chobani’s upstate New York and Idaho facilities. Chobani has been available in Panama for the last few weeks and will soon be available throughout the Caribbean.

Chobani was the Dairy Foods Processor of the Year in 2012.
