Oikos announced the launch of its first products to be certified organic.

 The new Oikos Organic Greek yogurt features the exclusive use of organic milk from certified farms in Ontario. Available in two flavours – Plain and Vanilla – it features only the best ingredients, with no artificial flavours, sweeteners, or preservatives. Like all certified organic products, Oikos Organic yogurts are made without genetically engineered ingredients.
 
Prepared using three times more milk than traditional yogurt, Oikos Organic products can be enjoyed on their own or as a protein-rich base for a smoothie, dip, soup or other recipes.
 
According to the Canada Organic Trade Association, the appetite for organic food and beverages is growing dramatically, with 66 per cent of Canadian shoppers buying certified products every week. The trend shows no sign of slowing, with an impressive 83 per cent of millennials buying an organic food or beverage item at least once a week.
 
“Oikos has become Canada’s leading Greek yogurt because it has always been made with quality ingredients. As Canadians increasingly add organic products to their grocery basket, we’re pleased to now offer an option that offers the delicious Oikos taste and texture they know and love, while also being certified organic,” said Alexandra Latendresse, Senior Brand Manager at Danone Canada, in a press release.
