The Dannon® Company Introduces Ready-to-Serve Yogurt Parfait to Simplify Foodservice Operators’ Needs

The Dannon Company announces that it is making yogurt parfaits a whole lot easier for foodservice operators to offer with its new Dannon Ready-to-Serve Vanilla Lowfat Yogurt Parfait. With the launch of the new Dannon Yogurt Parfait, Dannon is continuing its pursuit of the mission to bring health through food to as many people as possible via an innovative way to drive traffic and grow sales.

As people continue to lead busier, more hectic lives, the demand for on-the-go, easy-to-enjoy products that are nutritious and delicious has increased exponentially. In fact, the modern consumer spends approximately 50% of their food expenditures away from home.1

“The Dannon Ready-to-Serve Yogurt Parfait said Yann Audebert, Vice President, The Dannon Company, and head of the company’s Foodservice Division. “Yogurt parfaits are

popular across all dayparts and demographics, making them must-have products for foodservice operators. And as consumers today spend more time and money away from home, the Dannon Ready-to-Serve Yogurt Parfait fulfills an unmet need in their busy lifestyles.”

“Dannon Ready-to-Serve Yogurt Parfait is an operator’s answer to the yogurt parfait trend, and it delivers operational efficiency,” Audebert said. “The Dannon Yogurt Parfait also works with existing store-made parfait programs for on-the-go requires no prep time for operators and comes prepackaged, with a separate compartment for granola ensuring each component stays fresh,” stations as well as supplementing sales during off-peak hours – all with the brand name and legacy that Americans have enjoyed for 70 years.”

The new parfait also provides the benefit of a nutrition facts panel for consumers who want to know more about what they are eating and for operators who provide this information to their customers in other ways. The 21-day shelf life of the new parfait is intended to minimize waste and spoilage.2
