Made-in-Australia Chobani Arrives in Malaysia & Singapore

The Chobani Greek Yogurt appearing lately at Village Grocers in Malaysia is actually made at the new Chobani factory in Australia’s Dandenong South in the state of Victoria. The US company commissioned the new plant in December 2012. According to foodnavigator-usa.com, the factory has now increased its output to 25,000 cases per day from 25,000 cases per week. That’s a huge increase within one year.

The article mentions Chobani is now the second best selling yogurt in Woolsworth and has shipped its first palette to Asia. That’s the reason why we are seeing Chobani in the Malaysian market lately.

In Singapore, Chobani has struck a deal with Frosts Food and Beverage Pte Ltd to make available nine Chobani Greek Yogurt SKUs in the local market. With a short distance from Asia, the Australian plant does make economic sense as the manufacturing site for products destined for Asia. In Singapore, Chobani is available at NTUC Fairprice and Cold Storage.

The nine SKUs in Singapore include 170 single-serve pots in Plain, Blood Orange, Blueberry, Honey, Mango, Raspberry, Passion Fruit and Strawberry, in low-fat and fat-free varieties. The 907g multi-serve format fat-free Chobani will also be made available. The recommended retail price for the 170g pots is S$3.95 (RM10.21). At Village Grocers, Malaysia, the same 170g pot sells for RM8.69, that’s 15% cheaper than in Singapore.
