Ambient yoghurt is a type of yoghurt that has boomed in popularity in recent years. These yoghurts do not need to be chilled, and are either eaten with a spoon (often with added fruit), or else drunk directly from the package. This convenience has made it an extremely successful product, and a growth item in many markets.
Ambient drinking yoghurt, an entirely new category of dairy drinks, has taken China by storm since its launch in 2010. The market for this exciting product innovation has grown at an astounding rate, accounting for 13% of the country’s total yoghurt category in 2014 and is expected to achieve sales of almost €5 billion by the end of 2017. This illustrates the scale of opportunity the product presents globally, according to Tetra Pak. Read more in Ambient drinking yoghurt: untapped global potential
