New Zealand homemade yoghurt brand, EasiYo is celebrating 25 years since it revolutionised the category in New Zealand with it’s simple ‘make at home’ system.
In 2016 Canstar Blue canvassed the opinions of Kiwis across the country to see how they rate the brand they most recently purchased. While several brands produced impressive results, one stood out from the yoghurt crowd – EasiYo.

EasiYo does yoghurt differently. Unlike other brands, EasiYo sells yoghurt powders in a wide range of flavours, which customers can use to make their own yoghurt at home, when they want it. Simply add water, shake and allow to ferment overnight. EasiYo doesn’t compromise on quality, packed with nutrients and no artificial ingredients, as well as billions of live cultures including Probiotics.
If you don’t have the latest EasiYo flavour on your shelves you’re missing out, EasiYo Raspberry and Lemon has taken the category by storm, awarded a silver media via Black Box sampling which achieved 80-89% recommendation scores, which is certainly evident in sales in NZ, and has now launched in Australia, UK and Europe.
Founded in 2009 by two entrepreneurial chefs - Ofer Shenhav and Angus Allan – The Collective is renowned for its no nasties approach to delivering great tasting yoghurt.

This yoghurt is so cleaver it literally makes itself… no bull!
