Pillars Yogurt Launches Pillars Plant: Organic Coconut Probiotic Yogurt

BOSTON - BostonChron -- Pillars Yogurt, LLC has joined the burgeoning plant-based yogurt category with the

launch of its new innovation, Pillars Plant, an Organic Coconut Probiotic Yogurt.

Pillars founder Eric Bonin spent three years developing the new dairy-free yogurt, which

is hitting both Wegmans and Central Market shelves this week, and will be rolling out to

other retailers through the remainder of the year.

"The majority of plant-based yogurts that have come to market over the last few years

have tasted awful and lack the nutritional value and functionality of dairy yogurt - this is

partly why the category hasn't taken off quite like other plant based segments, such as

plant milks. Pillars Plant solves all this. It tastes like dessert and delivers the nutritional

value people want, need, and now expect from their food", says Bonin.

"Much like how our original product line of Drinkable Greek Yogurts disrupted the

drinkable segment as the first full drinkable yogurt line on the market without added

sugar, we saw a similar opportunity in plant based yogurt to create a product that better

meets the needs of a wellness lifestyle: lower sugar, higher protein, functional fats, and

our unique blend of pre + probiotics, which help support gut health. We're expanding

our product mission of being the category leader in removing unnecessary sugar, this

time, in the plant based yogurt game. Pillars Plant has dramatically less sugar than

what's on the market now but tastes incredible and has this super thick creamy texture

that's out of this world. We nailed this innovation."

Pillars Plant will launch in 16oz multi-serve cups, available in three flavors Vanilla,

Mixed Berry, and Strawberry Banana. A single 5.3 oz serving has 180 calories, 14

grams of fat, 8g of plant-based protein, 3g of prebiotic fiber, only 1g of total sugar, and

contains 30-60 billion live and active probiotic cultures including the scientifically

validated BB12 strain. Pillars Plant is USDA certified organic, vegan, keto, non-GMO,

OU Kosher, gluten-free and features a fully recyclable, BPA-free and phthalate-free cup.

"We really leaned into sourcing and sustainability. The ingredients in Pillars Plant are

sourced from suppliers who follow regenerative agriculture practices and the cups and

lids are 100% recyclable. Our tagline, 'Naturally simple, Naturally good' has been our

core ethos since day one and applies more than ever with this new product line."

Pillars' brand portfolio also features its well-known heritage product line, Drinkable

Greek Yogurt, which was the first drinkable Greek yogurt on the market without any

added sugar. Pillars' drinkable line has grown to include six 12oz single-serve SKUs

and four 32oz multi-serve SKUs available in over 2500 retail stores across the country.
