Yoghurt for British breakfast

Press Release   •   Oct 31, 2002 12:35 CET

As a healthy alternative to the traditional British breakfast of bacon and eggs, Arla Foods UK Division, in partnership with the UK's largest multiple, Tesco, has developed three exciting breakfast.

"Around 70% of all yoghurt in Denmark and Sweden is consumed in the mornings," explains Ove Lindbjerg Pedersen, Marketing Controller, the UK Division. "In the UK the figure is only 10%."

"When British consumers eat yoghurt, they generally do so as a snack or as a dessert in 150-200 g cartons. The fact that they can now buy a drinking yoghurt in one-litre cartons is quite a novelty. It's a slightly more expensive and tastier alternative to milk - and is ideal for pouring over breakfast cereals.

Another product corresponding to the Danish Cheasy will be available in 450 g cartons and in a carton like Mini Meal (with accompanying topping) designed as a quick snack.

The products, which are produced at Brabrand Dairy, are well-known in Denmark and Sweden and have been adapted to British taste. They will be sold under Tesco's own label.
