The market is continuing to see a trend where consumers are seeking products that support their gut health which is driving a strong growth in Kefir products. Yeo Valley Organic is the market leader in potted Kefir and has grown 33% in the last year to £11m as a result of reaching new consumption occasions via the introduction of new pack formats, such as the multipacks.

Justin Stanley-Duke, Brand Manager at Yeo Valley Organic added, “Insight highlights that consumers are looking for products that support their gut health and are becoming increasingly aware of the benefits of Kefir products. We saw this as an important opportunity to extend our Kefir range to Drinking Kefir that will provide more in terms of taste, affordability and sustainability”.
