"Dairy companies have also broadened the appeal of savory yogurts by promoting them for multiple uses," commented Zenith Market Intelligence Director Esther Renfrew. "Savory options in supermarket chiller cabinets offer great versatility as snacks, dips, salad dressing and cooking ingredients. They offer a point of difference to excite the taste buds without excessive calories."
With a broad positioning that appeals to adults, millennials and children alike and, with a growing variety of flavor combinations, the category has been successful at attracting new customers as well as building loyal converts, Zenith reported. "As health concerns widen, savory yogurt has strong potential for continued growth and new product development in 2017," Ms. Renfrew concluded.
