Yogurt is widely consumed as part of diet owing to its rich in nature of nutrients including calcium and protein. The growing consumer interest towards convenience food products resulted in evolution of drinkable yogurt. The fast paced lifestyles of young and adult population resulted in increasing adoption of these yogurt drinks as breakfast and snacking. Furthermore, the innovation of drinkable yogurt blended with new flavors such as Aloe Vera and coconut is strengthening the adoption of yogurt drinks among health conscious population. According to Alove, a U.S. based Yogurt drinks manufacturer operating as a subsidiary of Morinaga Nutritional Foods, Inc., Aloe Vera based yogurt drinks witnessed a growth of over 30% in terms of new product launches during 2017-2018 in U.S., thus forming a major growth segment of the market. Aloe Vera is also rich in antioxidants that help clear and calm the skin, thus making them drink of choice among female population.
