From the Beautiful Hills Of Athens…Whoops, New York…Comes Creamy Chobani Greek Yogurt

Chobani is based in the beautiful hills of Upstate New York, where it was founded by Hamdi Ulukaya. From this rural area, Chobani has quickly grown into the number one brand of Greek yogurt in the country and is now a household staple among American consumers. It’s also one of the largest producers of kosher yogurt.

When reflecting on our brand’s amazing growth, Chobani must express its appreciation to the kosher yogurt certification of the Orthodox Union, the world’s largest and most widely recognized kosher certification agency. We are so proud to work with and be certified by this amazing group, for using its trusted symbol of quality heightens our packaging and overall brand.

“At Chobani we’re committed to quality at the highest level, and working with the OU is another assurance that we’re meeting those standards,” says Mr. Ulukaya, company founder and CEO.

In addition to our partnership with the OU, Chobani’s success also stems from our amazing product benefits, “Nothing But Good” philosophy, and dedicated production team.

From a product perspective, we are committed to producing only high-quality, healthy products. Everything we create has the following benefits:

  • All natural. No preservatives. No artificial flavors;
  • Created from milk from cows not treated with rBST;
  • Includes five live and active cultures, including strains of three probiotics;
  • Made with real fruit;
  • A good source of bone-building calcium;
  • Gluten-free and kosher certified;
  • Safe for people with corn, nut and soy allergies.

The “Nothing But Good” company mantra speaks to our commitment to social and community responsibility. We support natural farming processes to preserve the environment. And we have a “Giving Back” campaign, which consists of 10 percent of Chobani’s profits being donated to charities worldwide, 30 percent of which are New York State local philanthropic organizations.

Integral to our success is our amazing production team. At the helm of this team is our Master Yogurt Maker, Mustafa Dogan. He is a passionate artisan, armed with years of yogurt-making experience that results in the creamy, deliciousness that is Chobani. Mustafa custom blends special yogurt cultures just for Chobani that are added to the milk. This yogurt is then strained, making it outrageously creamy and ridiculously high in protein. Nothing But Good indeed!
