Chobani yogurt to be sold in Korea by SPC Samlip
Chobani is coming to Korea, the Norwich, New York-based maker of high-end yogurt having signed a deal with SPC Samlip.
The exclusive arrangement was announced Thursday.
Chobani sources its milk from cows raised in clean and spacious environments and does not allow for the use of artificial growth hormones. It offers a variety of dairy products, such as Greek yogurt, oat milk and coffee creamers.
Chobani's products will be sold to local customers via online platforms, including Coupang and Market Kurly, starting in July. Popular products, such as the Chobani Fruit on the Bottom Greek Yogurt and plain yogurt, will be available.
The latest deal is part of the Korean company’s plan to expand its dairy product range. It already sells organic milk products and introduced Royal Rich Jersey Milk in February.
KRX-listed SPC Samlip also has plans to domestically produce yogurt using local ingredients.
“We signed an exclusive deal with Greek yogurt-maker Chobani to satisfy increasing customer demand for healthy foods,” said a spokesperson for SPC Samlip. “We will focus on the fresh food market and expand our business, establishing a strong foothold as a multi-food manufacturer.”
