Chobani Yogurt Wins American Choice Award


The American Choice Awards Announces National Best Brand Winner – Chobani Yogurt

New York, New York – The American Choice Awards (America’s Largest Consumer Vote) today announced that Chobani Yogurt has won the National Best Brand Award in the Greek Yogurt category.

The road to being crowned America’s #1 Greek Yogurt started with a dream of Chobani Founder and CEO, Hamdi Ulukaya, who was on a simple yet profound mission – to provide better food for more people. He believed that people have great taste, they just need better options. So, he set out to make delicious, nutritious, and natural Greek yogurt right here in the U.S.A. For two long years Mr. Ulukaya worked with a master yogurt maker to perfect every step of the process and lay a solid foundation for the future. The resulting growth has been nothing short of a national sensation.

“We are very pleased to welcome Chobani into our family of National Best Brand winners. Mr. Ulukaya and his team are clearly committed to making a healthy difference for consumers in many delicious ways. Congratulations to this innovative brand and their fine management and team”, said Jen Johansen, American Choice Awards Senior Vice President of Polling and Research.

Today’s consumers are overwhelmed with options. Respected reviews and recommendations matter more than ever before. (84% of Americans surveyed trust word-of-mouth recommendations about products & services – Nielsen). The National Best Brand Award empowers shoppers to cut through the clutter and instantly recognize The Choice of American Consumers®.
