Hitting the Shelves: Global Trends -- July 2009
From the foodservice side, the high-end retailer Yogen Früz is known for nutritious and premium frozen yogurt. Yogen Früz is made fresh, with each serving of the frozen yogurt low in fat, high in fiber, boasting vitamins and probiotics or antioxidants, depending on the flavor. A few months ago, the franchiser joined forces with Big Sky Brands to develop a confection product under the Yogen Früz name in Canada. Yogen Früz Smoothies All Natural Hard Candy is formulated with natural fruit flavor and probiotic yogurt. While numerous products designed with probiotic cultures have launched globally in the dairy category, Yogen Früz smoothies are one of the first boiled sweets to contain the beneficial bacteria in its ingredient list.
