French Yogurt Buyers Now Have Varieties Made With Sheep Milk, Goat Milk

June 27, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
General Mills is introducing goat and sheep milk versions of Yoplait yogurt in France, following a strategic plan to bring greater diversity to its yogurt products. In fact, the products have that theme in their French name – Yoplait C’est bon de varier (variety is good). A significant trend in yogurt sales in France is the growing interest in products made from non-dairy ingredients. The alternative dairy segment, which includes products made with organic and soy ingredients, and with goat and sheep milk, accounts for about eight percent of the fresh dairy products sold in that country. According to General Mills, goat milk yogurt has a “strong taste” reminiscent of cheese, while sheep milk yogurt tastes sweeter and milder.
