VENICE, Calif. — Chobani, LLC, the maker of America’s #1 Greek Yogurt brand and second largest yogurt manufacturer in the U.S., has announced Venice, CA based beverage brand teaRIOT as one of nine participants in the company’s third Chobani Incubator program class. The brand was selected from over 650 food and beverage companies that applied.

“We are honored the Chobani team saw teaRIOT’s vision to disrupt the tea and energy beverage categories overridden with processed ingredients and added sugar with fresh, functional ingredients anchored in tea’s proven, centuries-old benefits” said Founder and Chief Rioteer, Laura Jakobsen.

teaRIOT offers a better, focused energy from fresh-brewed tea blended with nutrient rich botanicals, fruits and veggies. No added sugar. No jitters. No crash. The combination of natural tea caffeine, L-Theanine & no added sugar enhance focus and prolong energy levels.

teaRIOT launched in the Southern Pacific Whole Foods market just over a year ago. Their distribution recently increased to include the Whole Foods Rocky Mountain Region and they continue to expand into the independent natural channel in the Western United States. The brand is confident the learnings they will garner through the Chobani Incubator program curriculum and Chobani’s network of expertise will accelerate its mission of energizing people everywhere with the benefits of tea.
