We’re proud to work together to help Veteran-founded startups in any way we can.

Chobani® has partnered with the Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF) at Syracuse University to create a first-of-its-kind food Incubator program for Veteran-founded startups. By combining Chobani’s expertise in sales, marketing and innovation along with IVMF’s platforms built specifically to assist Veteran entrepreneurs, our pay-it-forward program will continue to support efforts to bring better food to more people.
