Westport, CT (PRWEB) March 20, 2014
Newman’s Own introduces Newman’s Own Greek Nonfat Yogurt to its lineup of great-tasting, philanthropy-driven products. The five-variety line is being introduced to the Atlantic Seaboard this month and will be available in other major markets, in addition to the metro New York region. Newman’s Own Greek Nonfat Yogurt is a delicious option in the growing healthy Greek yogurt category.
Since 1982 when Paul Newman founded Newman’s Own, all after-tax profits and royalties from the sale of Newman’s Own products have gone to charity. The funds are distributed through Newman’s Own Foundation. Over $400 million has been donated to thousands of nonprofit organizations to date.
The Newman’s Own Greek Nonfat Yogurt arrives in the metro New York region, where contributions made by Paul Newman and Newman’s Own Foundation from the profits of Newman’s Own products have been supporting local charities for more than 30 years. More than $46 million has been donated in the last five years alone to local charities such as: The New York Botanical Garden (Bronx Green-Up program), Puppies Behind Bars (inmate-trained guide dogs for disabled veterans), Hurricane Sandy response (via New York Community Trust, Food Bank for New York City, City Harvest, and Project Hospitality), and SeriousFun Children’s Network (Paul Newman’s global family of camps for children facing serious illness), including Double H Ranch in Lake Luzerne, which has served more than 20,000 children from New York and the region.
“We’re excited about launching Greek Nonfat Yogurt,” said Dave Best, vice president, marketing, Newman’s Own. “It gives consumers a great-tasting, healthy option while supporting our philanthropic mission and contributing to the common good.”
The difference in the Newman’s Own Greek Nonfat Yogurt is the fruit – big pieces of delicious fruit on the bottom – plus a thicker, creamier yogurt texture. Newman’s Own yogurt has 12 grams of protein, five live & active cultures and zero grams of fat. It is all natural, with no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives.
The five varieties of Newman’s Own Greek Nonfat Yogurt include: blueberry, pineapple, strawberry, peach and black cherry. The yogurt is available in a 5.3 oz. size and carries a suggested retail price of $1.49.
The following retailers carry Newman’s Own Greek Nonfat Yogurt in their dairy cases: Stop & Shop, Giant, Hannaford, Shaw’s, A&P, The Food Emporium, Pathmark, Waldbaum’s, Big Y and Price Chopper.
