Maison Riviera is innovating the greek yogurt market and expanding its range
Varennes (Québec), September 30th, 2021 – Maison Riviera, a leader in dairy products since 1920, is innovating the Greek yogurt market. A new plant-based Kefir drink will be available in a single-serve size in addition to new original and gourmet flavors.

Deliciously extra-creamy, high in protein, and low in carbohydrates, a new “Keto Friendly” range will be launched in Canada within the Greek yogurt category

These last few years, Canadian consumers have been increasingly interested in buying healthy products, as well as being on the lookout for foods that will support their personal health. In Canada, the ketogenic diet is booming. It consists of a high- fat and low carbohydrate intake, focusing on good fats.

Maison Riviera is innovating the Canadian market by creating a Greek yogurt that is sure to please the keto diet enthusiasts as well as those looking for a healthy lifestyle. With 9% milk fat, this new range offers all the subtlety of an unctuous Greek yogurt: deliciously extra-creamy, high in proteins (17g for the plain flavor and 15g for the others) yet low in carbohydrates (2g for the plain flavor and 7g for the others). Furthermore, this lactose-free recipe is made of natural ingredients, rich in probiotics, and certified Kosher. These “Keto Friendly” Greek yogurts are offered in a 500g format and come in three irresistible flavors: plain, strawberry, and coconut.

Maison Riviera now offers a complete collection of Greek yogurts under a new brand image, with “Keto Friendly” being added to the existing classic (0% and 2% M.F) and organic (2% M.F) Greek yogurts. This innovation unifys the entire range, while highlighting the elements consumers are looking for.

A new and convenient size, source of protein, rich in active probiotics, and delicious fruits make Maison Riviera’s plant- based coconut milk Kefir drink the ideal snack option or addition your breakfast

The new 220 ml format of Maison Riviera’s coconut milk Kefir is an excellent snack option with 4g of protein and rich active probiotics. It also contains two billion probiotics per portion, thus offering multiple benefits for both gut health and the immune system. This plant-based drink is high in vitamins (with the addition of vitamins A, B12, D) and with a good source of calcium, gluten-free, artificial-sweeteners-free, certified Kosher, and available in delicious vanilla, strawberry, and mango flavors.
