Fair Oaks Farms in northwest Indiana is making yogurt for a new item at Chick-fil-A. The restaurant says the Greek Yogurt Parfait will be served at more than 1,900 restaurants nationwide.
Chick-fil-A says the parfait has less sugar and more protein than the previous yogurt parfait. It also features fresh strawberries and blueberries and can be topped with granola or chocolate cookie crumbles.
"Our customers have been asking us for menu items that are higher in protein and we’re listening. The parfait is delicious and not only makes breakfast better for our guests — it’s available all day as a side item, snack or dessert," Vice President of Product Strategy and Development, David Farmer said.
Chick-fil-A partnered with Chicago-based dairy company, fairlife LLC, to make the farm-to-table Greek yogurt. The yogurt is made at Fair Oaks Farms in Fair Oaks, Indiana, using the company’s patented filtration process.
"Our proprietary technique allows us to preserve the protein and other nutrients that are packed into our fresh, high-quality milk. Better protein-packed milk makes better yogurt. You won’t find anything like this Greek yogurt anywhere else," fairlife Director of Communications, Anders Porter said.
Porter says the chefs from Chick-fil-A’s culinary team worked with the farm for seven months to "perfect the blend of flavors."
