Industry News: Brown Cow Goes Non-GMO Project Verified, Comes Home to the Northeast


Beloved cream top yogurt launches a refreshed look and a renewed mission of helping local family farms by sourcing Non-GMO Project Verified milk.

LONDONDERRY, N.H., May 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Brown Cow Whole Milk Yogurt, the "Original Cream Top"™ yogurt, is proud to announce that it is now Non-GMO Project Verified, sourcing milk from family-owned farms located in Vermont. With its full-fat milk, wholesome ingredients and a longstanding commitment to cows, the cream top, whole milk yogurt with fruit on the bottom has never tasted better.

Indulgent Brown Cow yogurt has always had a delicious cream top that fans know and love, and is now a Non-GMO Project Verified brand, meaning that consumers can know and trust that the ingredients in every cup are made without the use of genetically modified organisms. With milk that is sourced from family farmers who care about the well-being of their cows, yogurt eaters can feel good about purchasing a product that has an agenda beyond the spoon – now backed up by third-party verification.

"Brown Cow Yogurt was originally made in Ithaca, New York by two farmers who had an idea to make delicious yogurt," said Brand Manager Lizzie Conover. "After moving to the West Coast more than 40 years ago, it's great to have the brand travel back to its roots in the Northeast – proudly made with milk from family farms who give their cows only Non-GMO feed," she added.

In addition to being Non-GMO Project Verified, Brown Cow uses only quality ingredients, like maple syrup, honey, real vanilla, coffee and cocoa and never any artificial growth hormones, artificial flavors or artificial sweeteners.

Suppliers are an integral part of the Brown Cow family.  In paying a premium for the production of Non-GMO milk, the Brown Cow brand is helping grow and sustain a network of family farms.

"The higher premium we pay provides family farms the opportunity to remain competitive. These farms are having a positive impact in their communities and are positioning themselves to continue in the dairy industry here in New England for the long term," said Vice President of Sourcing and Sustainability, Rolf Carlson.

The delicious, cream top yogurt comes in Plain, Maple, Vanilla, Blueberry, Strawberry, Peach, Coffee, Raspberry, Apricot Mango, Cherry Vanilla, Chocolate, and Lemon in a 5.3oz cup and Plain, Maple and Vanilla in a 32 oz cup, for those who want a little more. Brown Cow yogurt is available nationally and consumers can find the closest cup on the brand's store locator.
