MADISON (WKOW) -- Greek yogurt has been the fastest growing dairy product among American consumers and one Wisconsin plant is offering up their version of the snack.
Klondike cheese is well known in the dairy industry for making award-winning Feta Cheese, but recently they've expanded their facility and are now producing Greek-style yogurt!
A 40,000-square-foot addition to the plant houses the yogurt line. Using their Odyssey® brand, they are launching a line of fruit on the bottom Greek-style yogurts for retail as well as plain and vanilla for food service. But producing yogurt isn't as simple as adding culture and watching milk ferment.
"To have that consistency is the more challenging part," said Adam Buholzer, VP of production at Klondike Cheese. "But we pride ourselves on coming with that philosophy- a quality first philosophy, and of course brought that to the yogurt side."
Klondike currently makes a zero, two percent, and ten percent milk-fat level yogurt in sizes ranging from 5.3-ounce retail cups, to 5-gallon food service pails.
"You know, I am very proud, but like I said, there's still a lot of work to do." Buholzer said.
