Müllerlight is set to shake up the Greek Style category again with the major launch of new mouth-watering Fruitopolis - the only Greek style yogurt range with a fruit layer on top… AND it’s unbelievably fat free, with 90 calories or less per pot!

A completely new taste sensation, Müllerlight aims to transport consumer’s taste buds to a Greek paradise with each heavenly layer of Müllerlight Fruitopolis. Topped with a tempting sumptuous real fruit layer, the irresistible, thick and creamy-tasting Greek Style yogurt makes for a tantalising and fat-free wow moment!

Since its launch in 2012 - the biggest launch in the category in the past five years - Müllerlight Greek Style yogurt consistently proves to be a hit with consumers, with the brand’s value sales up 25.7% in the last 12 months[1], and a retail sales value of over £46m![2]

Müller Dairy’s Marketing and R&D Director Michael Inpong, says:

“Consumers adore our creamy tasting, fat free Müllerlight Greek Style, and with the launch of our new Fruitopolis range we’re thrilled to offer them a totally new and innovative way to enjoy the Greek Style yogurt we know they love, and can feel good about eating.

“Müllerlight Greek Style Fruitopolis is a major launch for us, one we hope will inject excitement back into the category since we burst onto the scene in 2012, and we’ll be supporting it with a brand new £6m media campaign.”

Available in three delicious flavours, Strawberry, Cherry and Peach & Passion fruit, Müllerlight Greek Style Fruitopolis will launch on a rolling basis from the 16th of June, available in singles and four packs with an RRP of 75p and £2.49 respectively.
