Chobani moves beyond Greek with Smooth launch: 'We're a yogurt company, not a Greek yogurt company'

Chobani Smooth hits stores this month (MSRP $1.79 for a 2-pack) and is available in peach, strawberry, vanilla, blueberry, and black cherry flavors

Chobani – which disrupted the US dairy category a decade ago with its Greek yogurt – is now aiming to do the same in the non-Greek segment with the launch of Chobani Smooth, a low fat, mild-tasting blended fruit yogurt with twice the protein, 25% less sugar and a cleaner label than other leading brands.
