Upstate New York, Yogurt Hotbed

Upstate New York, with its 28 plants owned by Chobani, Fage, Yoplait maker General Mills, and others, has become a yogurt hotbed

With 28 plants and one more to open by yearend, New York is the nation’s fastest-growing yogurt producer. The facilities produced 553 million pounds in 2011, doubling 2005’s total. California still makes the most yogurt, but New York is tops when it comes to Greek.
