Rickland Orchards Introduces First Shelf-Stable Greek Yogurt Bar
Rickland Orchards has launched the first Greek Yogurt Bar: the optimal nutritious, delicious, and all natural, on-the-go snack.
Rickland Orchards Greek Yogurt Bars feature honey-roasted granola and real fruit dipped in Authentic Strained Greek Yogurt imported from Europe. Rickland Orchards is the first to offer consumers Greek Yogurt in a shelf-stable, great tasting bar; and furthermore provide an excellent source of fiber and a good source of protein in each serving. Now, busy parents, active kids and teens, and health conscience consumers can enjoy the benefits of Greek yogurt and probiotics effortlessly.
According to CEO and co-founder Jason Cohen, “We are thrilled with the overwhelming positive response we have received on our Greek Yogurt Bars. We have developed the perfect combination of great taste, strong nutritional values and on trend, quality ingredients.”
The phenomenon of Greek yogurt has spread across all consumer groups, and Rickland Orchards is staying ahead of the curve by expanding into non-traditional ways in which to enjoy Greek yogurt. In 2007, Greek yogurt sales totaled $35.4 million and the projected Greek yogurt sales for 2012 are estimated to be well more than $2 billion. Rickland Orchards Greek Yogurt Bars are already flying off the shelves in major markets across the country, according to the company, which has received authorizations in more than 10,000 locations in the first 90 days of its launch.
“We have literally traveled the globe in the last six months searching for the best ingredients and securing our supply of shelf-stable, authentic Greek Yogurt”, said President and co-founder Michael Sands. “Working with the top food scientists was a must before we approved the product for launch. The hard work paid off—the acceptance by dry grocery buyers has been incredible. They see the growth of Greek Yogurt in the refrigerated section and want to capitalize on it in their set.”
Rickland Orchards All Natural Greek Yogurt Bars are layered with the finest granola, real fruit and nuts and authentic Greek yogurt. Bars are available in six distinct flavors: Blueberry Acai, Cherry Almond, Toasted Coconut, Cranberry Almond, Apple & Honey, and Orchard Peach. Rickland Orchards Greek Yogurt Bars contain all natural ingredients, 5g of fiber, 7g of protein and probiotics.
