Cholov Yisroel Consumers Finally Have Greek Yogurt

NEW YORK — For the estimated 350,000 kosher consumers who eat only Cholov Yisroel (higher standard of kosher dairy), there will finally be a brand of Greek Yogurt that they can eat. In an announcement, Norman’s of Rutherford NJ announced that a new line of Norman’s Cholov Yisroel Yogurt will be introduced next week. The products were showcased at the recently held Kosherfest 2012. The Greek Yogurt was named the Best New Dairy Product at Kosherfest by a prestigious panel of judges at Kosherfest's Annual New Product Competition on October 18th.

The Norman’s Greek Yogurt was developed by a panel of experts, headed by Jacob Glauber, who sought to capture the rich texture and magnificent taste that exceeds the standard in the marketplace. Norman’s Greek Yogurt comes in six flavors- Plain, Strawberry, Peach, Black Cherry, Vanilla, and Blueberry. As more and more people start buying Greek Yogurt, the plethora of companies offering it has grown by leaps and bounds. U.S. sales of Greek yogurt have more than doubled in the past five years to $1.6 billion, according to Euromonitor International. Last year, Greek yogurt accounted for about 21 percent of yogurt sales.
