Passionate to Fulfill Consumer Preference and Provide Variety, Dannon Announces the Return of Kosher for Passover Yogurt

Available Nationwide March 15, Dannon Kosher for Passover Yogurt is the Perfect Snack, Meal or Recipe Ingredient

White Plains, NY (February 28, 2018) – Today, Dannon, the leading yogurt maker in the U.S., announced the return of its beloved Kosher for Passover yogurt – the only major yogurt company to go above and beyond expectations with nationwide availability of this offering.

"We’re thrilled to offer our customers Dannon Kosher for Passover Yogurt and we’re proud to have become a staple in Kosher households over the years," said Sergio Fuster, president of the US yogurt portfolio at Danone North America, the maker of Dannon. "At Dannon, we are honored to have a rich history serving the needs of the Jewish community and others, and to continue to deliver on our commitment to cater to consumer demand by offering the widest variety of products."

Daniel Carasso immigrated to the U.S. as World War II engulfed Europe. When he arrived in New York, he founded Dannon in 1942, bringing delicious yogurt to American families. For more than 20 years, Dannon has been producing yogurt that is Kosher for Passover, which requires that the recipe and ingredients be adapted to conform to strict guidelines administered by the Orthodox Union and that the process be overseen by a rabbi trained in the specific certification. Dannon goes to great lengths to serve the diverse preferences of shoppers and is proud to again offer Kosher for Passover yogurt for a flavorful twist on meals and snacks over the course of Passover, without which these might not be possible to enjoy.

This year, Dannon partnered with Adeena Sussman, a renowned cookbook author, recipe developer, and passionate home cooking expert, to develop unique, creative recipes using Dannon Kosher for Passover yogurt. The recipes use Dannon Kosher for Passover yogurt as a base ingredient to create delicious spreads perfect for matzah topping.

"Growing up, Dannon Kosher for Passover yogurt was a part of my family’s Passover tradition" said Adeena Sussman. "I'm happy to carry on that heritage and bring fresh new ideas to the Passover table."

Dannon Kosher for Passover Yogurt is available nationwide for a month before Passover and during the eight-day holiday, from March 30 – April 7, and retails for $3.29 for Quarts, $.79 for a single serving and $2.79 for the 4-pack.

The products, certified by the Orthodox Union, come in a diverse range of offerings, including Plain Nonfat, Plain Lowfat, Plain Whole Milk, Vanilla, and Coffee.
