Laura Chenel is kicking off its 40th anniversary with a new addition that further expands its portfolio. One of America’s original producers of high-quality goat milk cheese, the company is now launching two Laura Chenel Probiotic Goat Milk Yogurts throughout California and up the West Coast.

Food lovers who appreciate our cheese for its clean, bright, and mild flavor profile will also love our yogurts—we apply the same care and use the same milk for both products,” said Brand Manager Vanessa Chang.

Both flavors are gluten-free and certified Kosher by Kashruth Certification.
