NEW BERLIN — Chobani took a giant step toward a more sustainable future, announcing Thursday it has launched a paper cup initiative to reduce plastic use and put more sustainable packaging on shelves across America. Chobani’s new product innovations – oatmilk, cold brew coffee and coffee creamers – already come in paper-based packaging that is recyclable. After two years of development, the company is now moving its oat yogurt into a paper-based cup.
“We’ll continue exploring more sustainable packaging across our portfolio that will use less plastic and more paper,” the announcement said. Chobani’s paper cup is 80% paperboard, made from responsibly sourced and renewable material. The cup has a thin plastic lining to maintain the quality of our product.
Customers will start finding Chobani’s paper cup in the yogurt aisle at the end of this year. It will begin with single-serve Chobani Oat Blend. The company said additional sustainable packaging initiatives are planned.
