NORWICH – Chobani will be an option to include on every school lunch tray in the country starting this fall.
The U. S. Department of Agriculture announced this week that Chobani, the Chenango County born producer of Greek-style yogurt, will serve as the main provider of Greek yogurt for K-12 students in school lunch programs nationwide.
On Monday, Chobani spokesmen said the company will offer its product to schools at significantly reduced prices as part of its founding mission to provide better nutritious food for more people.
“When it comes to kids, for us it’s less about making money or moving market share,” said Chobani Chief Marketing Officer Peter McGuinness. “It’s more about making an investment in children and providing them with healthier options in school – better food for more children.”
