Lion Dairy

Lion Dairy

Lion Dairy has launched Yoplait Smooth in 100g servings, specifically for the health, aged care and community setting.

Yoghurt is a versatile and nutritious menu item for Health & Aged care residents.

Yoplait is Australia’s largest yoghurt brand and provides a variety of formats and flavours to suit different consumer needs.

However, Lion received feedback from health and aged care customers that regular Yoplait fruit products weren’t suitable for patients or residents with swallowing difficulties due to the presence of fruit pieces. Taking this feedback into consideration, Lion have now launched Yoplait smooth with Strawberry, Banana and Vanilla in each pack to avoid flavour fatigue:

35% Calcium RDI/ serve
Smooth Formulation
100g Tub Serving Size
Three flavours in each pack

Click here to view the Yoplait Smooth brochure.

Price rises:
You will see all suppliers will now have a price rise in place, due to a cream shortage in Australia. CCI has not had a price rise since 2015 and kept this increase to the minimum. Please note there have been no price rises affecting milk, so pricing for milk products has remained the same.
