Fighting for the Future of Food

 

The Chobani Incubator is a program for companies taking on broken food systems to bring better food to more people. In addition to investment, we give startups access to our network and expertise in order to scale up their operations and achieve significant growth.

In Their Own Words

"I think the Chobani Incubator is literally the best thing that could happen to an early stage food/bev company. The resources, engagement from Chobani leadership, network, and validation were all huge benefits of the program."
—Denise Woodard, Partake Foods

"We learned so much from the Chobani Incubator about moving into retail. We came in as an online-heavy business and graduated 6 months later with a strong retail plan, 150%+ retail growth, and national rollout approvals. None of this would have happened without Chobani."
—Justin Mares, Kettle & Fire

"It will shift your entire mind-set about building your organization; you will come away totally inspired and you will always be part of the family. The depth and breadth of their resources are incredible, and the willingness and helpfulness is totally unprecedented."
