SEATTLE — Starbucks has partnered with Danone to develop a line of dairy products, which will fall under the chain’s Evolution Fresh brand.
“Starbucks is committed to evolving and enhancing our customer experience with innovative and wholesome food offerings. Today’s announcement underscores this commitment through the transformation of our existing yogurt offerings and our multi-year agreement with Danone,” said Howard
Schultz, chairman, president and CEO of Starbucks. “We are energized by the strong customer response to Evolution Fresh offerings and believe a strategic agreement with Danone, the world leader in fresh dairy products, affords us the perfect opportunity to grow — and elevate — the Evolution Fresh brand.”
The new ready-to-eat Greek yogurt parfait is expected to debut at select U.S. Starbucks locations by 2014. It will be available at select grocery stores in 2015.
