Now it’s Swedish-style as new yoghurt hits Woolworths shelves

Posted by Andrea Hogan on 3rd April 2017

A style of Swedish yoghurt called ‘quark’ is now available in Woolworths supermarkets across Australia.

The yoghurt will be sold under the Rokeby Farms brand which is owned by the Made Group. The Made Group owns a number of Australian supermarket-sold brands including Cocobella and Impressed Juices.

Quark yoghurt is made using a blend of cheese and yoghurt cultures. The milk is cultured at a lower temperature than what is used to create most other yoghurts. As a result it takes longer to make the yoghurt as well.

The Made Group describes the yoghurt as being high in protein and calcium, whilst being low in fat and sugar.

Co-Founder of the Made Group, Luke Margaret, said he is pleased to be bringing a largely unknown yoghurt to Australia.

“Quark has been a diet staple in Sweden and other parts of Europe for centuries and is an emerging category in USA,” Margaret said.

Rokeby Farms Quark Yoghurt is available now from Woolworths in four flavours – natural, vanilla, strawberry and coconut. The recommended retail price is AUD $2.80 per 170g tub.
