Greek yogurt in recent years has taken New york by storm, becoming a key nutrient of the American diet and resulting in the increase of profits for companies selling it. However, apart from FAGE, that has conquered the American market, the Chobani company, owned by a Turk of Kurdish origin, has also taken an important place in the market. Now, his ex-wife revealed to the American media that he had stolen the recipe from FAGE.
According to New York Post, Hamdi Ulukaya, also known in New York as “the king of Greek yogurt,” was proud and revealed to several friends that he had stolen the recipe from an employee of FAGE. His wife Ayse Giray denounced him in court, claiming that Ulukaya had traveled to Europe to meet with a former FAGE employee, whom he bribed with 30,000 euros.
