Canadian dairy producer Lactalis Canada has expanded its robust portfolio with the addition of specialty brand Khaas. The dairy company now provides yogurt products from the Khaas Halal and Khaas Dahi line.
“Lactalis Canada is thrilled to introduce this new and authentic product line for an important and growing South Asian, Middle Eastern, and North African population in Canada, which makes up approximately 10 percent of the market,” said Adrienne Pagot-Gérault, General Manager, Yogourt and Cultured Division. “We encourage all consumers to experience these new lines of cultured products as we pride ourselves on bringing the same quality and craftsmanship from Lactalis Canada’s iconic brands such as Astro, Olympic, siggi’s, and IÖGO to Khaas Halal and Khaas Dahi so that more Canadians can enjoy the authentic tastes of home.”
Khaas Halal and Dahi yogurt products are sold at major retailers and ethnic grocery stores across Canada in the following varieties and formats: 0%, 2%, and 3% milk fat in both 750 g tubs and 2 kg pouches. Taking into account cultural diets and restrictions, Khaas Halal and Khaas Dahi are free of gelatin and artificial preservatives.
According to the release, Khaas Halal yogurt products are also 100 percent certified Halal by the Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of Canada, and Khaas Dahi yogourt products are 100 percent vegetarian. The Khaas plain yogurt products offer a mild and creamy taste and texture, perfect on its own or as a curdle-free cooking ingredient in authentic recipes, both savory and sweet.
To further serve Canada’s ever-growing South Asian, Middle Eastern, and North African populations, Lactalis Canada plans to expand this dairy portfolio in the near future with even more specialty product offerings, including the cheese category.
