The world’s leading organic yogurt maker, Stonyfield, has partnered up with Happy Family – the brand to first launch pouch packaging in the baby food industry in lieu of glass jars. The two companies made this joint announcement at Expo West where they debuted their full line of convenient pouches.
"Stonyfield and Happy Family share the core belief that organic food made without the use of toxic persistent pesticides and GMOs is the very best for little ones. It's truly exciting to work together to offer the very best in infant and toddler nutrition that also makes life a little easier for parents," says Gary Hirshberg, chairman and co-founder of Stonyfield Organic.
"Stonyfield & Happy Family yogurt pouches offer a convenient and portable option for busy families looking for delicious fruit and vegetable combinations their kids love and that also deliver the organic promise parents trust," continues Shazi Visram, founder, CEO/ chief mom of Happy Family. "We're thrilled to be able to offer parents even more options for healthy products made with optimum nutrition."
"Yogurt is a perfect, nutrient-dense food that can grow with your baby from a first food to a healthy lunchbox snack. I always recommend choosing an organic option and Stonyfield's YoBaby, YoTot and YoKids yogurt pouches are wonderful sources of protein, balanced fats, carbohydrates, and minerals to aid growth and development," explains Dr. Bill Sears, one of America's most trusted pediatricians.
The yogurt pouches are sold separately as well as in four packs. The suggested retail price is $1.49 and $4.99. The re-sealable package can be unrefrigerated for up to four hours.
