Origin Food Group, based in Statesville, N.C, manufactures value-added dairy products for private-label and contract manufacturing accounts. The dairy processor also makes its own branded cultured dairy foods and beverages, as well as drinkable yogurts, cup yogurts, gelatins, bulk yogurt and ice cream mixes. Later this year it will add shelf-stable flavored dairy beverage capabilities.

“This will allow us to produce shelf-stable flavored milks including chocolate, strawberry, etc., and iced coffees,” said COO Glenn Patcha. “Most of these categories are large and growing and Origin sees opportunities for more innovation to continue to fuel growth. The category fills a key need in that these products have long shelf life and are very convenient because they can be enjoyed on the go.

Origin also sees opportunities to serve the tastes of Hispanic consumers and has sour creams and dulce de leche products in the works for 2014.

“We can produce Hispanic drinkable yogurt, cup yogurt that is tailored to Hispanic flavor preferences, Mexican crema (sour cream Mexican-style), dulce de leche and other potential Hispanic products,” he said. “This is an area that we are actively pursuing. Products can be produced for private label/contract customers and we may launch them under our own label as well.”

Origin’s drinkable yogurt, called Vida, launched early this year and is available in three 32-ounce varieties: Invigor, Awaken and Rejuvenate. Invigor is mango and guanabana fruit blended with probiotic-rich yogurt and plant-based phtyosterols.
