The Chobani Story

Chobani was founded on the belief that everyone should have access to delicious, nutritious, natural food. Our founder, Hamdi Ulukaya, created Chobani back in 2005 when he bought an old yogurt plant in Upstate New York. Together with a small group of passionate individuals, he devoted himself to crafting the real, wholesome yogurt he remembered from his childhood growing up in the mountains of Turkey.

The result was a deliciously thick and creamy Greek Yogurt created with the belief that good food should be made the right way, not the easy way. The yogurt is strained using an authentic process. In fact, it takes 3 cups of milk to make 1 cup of Chobani, which is why it’s so creamy and packed with protein.

Hamdi brought his dream down under in 2011 when he introduced the first pot of Chobani yogurt to the Australian market. Fast forward 10 years and Chobani has become a leader in yogurt, continuing to innovate and delight consumers with our delicious products.

Our delicious yogurt is crafted right here at our factory in Dandenong South, using fresh Aussie milk sourced from local farmers. Where possible, Chobani sources raw ingredients and packaging from local suppliers, always aiming to support our communities and the industry in which we operate.

Part of our mission is ensuring delicious, nutritious, natural food is accessible to all. With this promise, we have introduced Chobani Oat Milk®, a perfectly rich and creamy plant-based milk, made with the goodness of natural oats.

Through our products, our people and our efforts, Chobani is passionate about leading the way. We aim to make a difference with everything we do and encourage others to join us in a journey towards Food Made Good.
