Chobani enters into dips market
Greek yoghurt producer Chobani is now selling a range of dips in Australian supermarkets.
The “Chobani Meze Dip range” is described by Chobani as being “high protein” and it is made with strained Chobani yoghurt.
Each dip has 14-15g of protein per 150g serve and is 97 per cent fat free. The range is Chobani’s first attempt at producing dips.
Managing Director at Chobani Australia Peter Meek said that his company is using a similar process for making the dips as it does for its yoghurts.
“We use three cups of milk to make one cup of Chobani yoghurt,” Meek said.
“However, to create the perfect base for the perfect base for our dips, we took this one step further; straining four cups of milk to make one cup of yoghurt for our Chobani Meze Dips,” he said.
The dips are available in the following flavours
- Chilli Lime Ranch: Fresh lime and spicy chilli combined with Chobani yoghurt
- Herbed Tzatziki: Chobani yoghurt, cucumber and lemons mixed with herbs
- Roasted Red Pepper: Roasted red peppers mixed with
- Salsa Rojo: Green peppers, chilli and jalapenos mixed with coriander, lime and Chobani yoghurt.
Chobani says all of the dips contain no preservatives, artificial colours or flavours.
Chobani Meze Dips are available now in Woolworths supermarkets nationally. The recommended retail price is AUD$3.99 for a 150g serving.
Chobani had its start in 2005 in the US when CEO and founder Hamdi Ulukaya purchased a yoghurt plant formerly owned by Kraft. The product was first launched into Australia supermarkets in 2011.
