Tesco NI lists Clandeboye Greek-style yoghurt & granola


Award-winning local producer Clandeboye Estate has launched a new product in Tesco Northern Ireland, a crunchy, nut-free, granola-topped, Greek-style yoghurt available in the two flavours of Senga Strawberry and Mango.

Northern Ireland’s only producer of yoghurt from its own dairy herd, raised on the Clandeboye Estate, the business was founded by the late Lady Dufferin as a farm diversification project in 2007.

Clandeboye has won a host of Great Taste and other prestigious awards and is currently building a new £2m factory on the Estate to quadruple production and create 13 new jobs.

The expansion will allow the business to meet increasing demand in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, and to develop markets in GB.

“The new product has been developed to meet a business opportunity for a premium yoghurt topper we’ve identified in our on-going market research and regular discussions with Tesco and other supermarkets which we supply in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland,” said Bryan Boggs, general manager, Clandeboye Estate Yoghurts.

“We currently supply our range of yoghurts to every supermarket and the leading symbol groups in Northern Ireland, as well as hundreds of delis and smaller specialist stores.

“Tesco was keen on the new product and keen to be the launch customer, and we’re delighted that the new product will be on sale in many of its stores across Northern Ireland this month.”

The new retail launch, in 150g pots with an RRP of £1.29, is inspired by Clandeboye’s experience in producing luxury granola-topped yoghurt snack pots for the hospitality sector including café chains in Northern Ireland.

The yoghurt is produced from fresh milk sourced daily from Clandeboye’s award-winning Holstein herd free grazing on the 2,000-acre estate outside Bangor, Co Down.
