Our founder, Hamdi, built Chobani to take on the big guys by making delicious, nutritious, natural, and accessible food. That's why we call our food philosophy our "DNNA". And our mission? Better food for more people.

We're here to help small companies with big hearts and ideas challenge the food industry, improve broken systems, and make a difference.
