Rich new flavours from Clandeboye, Northern Ireland’s yoghurt leader

Yoghurt lovers in Northern Ireland will soon be able to enjoy three new products from Clandeboye Estate in Bangor, the only significant producer of the dairy favourite here.

A Food NI member, the company, based on a dairy farm outside the city, has created two indulgent Greek style yoghurts in top hat format tubs that feature dessert style flavours.

The exciting new flavours, revealed by Clandeboye’s commercial manager Patrick Black, are: Apple and Cinnamon Crumble and Raspberry and White Chocolate.

“The crumble features a fruity apple and cinnamon compote with Greek style yoghurt accompanied by a tasty crumble topping,” Patrick says. “The raspberry and white chocolate is a tangy raspberry Greek style yoghurt accompanied by a topping of delicious white chocolate pieces and dried raspberries,” he adds.

The new desserts are already proving a major success with leading retailers like Asda Northern Ireland, Spar, Supervalu and Tesco Northern Ireland.

Clandeboye, which has been in business since its formation as a farm diversification by the late Lady Dufferin in 2008, is supporting the launch with a social media competition offering the lucky winner a relaxing spa break for two people at the Old Crawfordsburn Inn.

The third innovative taste is a Honey Greek Style Yoghurt that’s authentically strained from fresh, whole milk from County Down, blended with real honey and a hint of sugar.

“The thick and creamy Greek Style yoghurt is a perfect accompaniment to granola and fresh fruit,” continues Patrick

In line with the company’s tradition of incorporating Lady Dufferin’s artwork into the pot design, the new Honey Greek Style features Lady Dufferin’s painting of the bee-hive which sits in the walled Bee-Hive garden on the Estate.

To support the launch Clandeboye is running a unique painting workshop with local artist Dawn Crowthers.

The new yoghurt will be available across Spar, Supervalu and Tesco Northern Ireland stores. The workshop is being held on Sun 26th May from 11:30am – 2:30pm, tickets are available from the company.
