Greek Yogurt – Healthy for You and for Dairy Processors’ Bottom Line

Thursday, 6 November 2014 by System Administrator

Touted for its protein content and creamy, thick texture, Greek yogurt has provided an enviable market boom for dairy processors. While you might not see their name on a cup of yogurt, W.M. Sprinkman has been an important resource for Greek yogurt producers.
