Hamdi Ulukaya, CEO of Greek-yogurt giant Chobani, expressed his respect for plant-based yogurt brands during a recent technology conference in New York. Recode reporter Kara Swisher asked Ulukaya about the trends in the yogurt industry, stating that she was confused about the soy- and cashew-based items she found at the supermarket. “I think that plant-based is real,” Ulukaya responded, before teasing that a plant-based Chobani product could be in development. “I respect what’s happening [with] plant-based products. I really do.”
