Our Very Own Yogurt Facility

on Thursday, 11 July 2013. Posted in Announcements

Returning Fall 2013

Under_Construction_NEW2

Thank you for hanging in there with us, and all your encouraging messages, through this difficult time while we work on getting WholeSoy yogurts back into full production. We have been openly sharing our story with you week by week as it unfolds and we have a whole lot more to share with you that developed over the 4th of July weekend.

For a quick recap: The facility that previously helped us make and package our soy yogurt (called a co-packer in the industry) abruptly closed its doors and stopped making our products giving us only three days' notice. We were fortunate to have been in the process of setting up a new facility, but moving yogurt production is a complicated endeavor that typically takes six months or more to complete. Last month, we were able to get some yogurt made and shipped but clearly not enough. The new co-packer had not lived up to our expectations, or yours, so we extended our timeline.

However, it has become painfully clear, even after all the long hours we put into trying to make it work, that the new co-packer will not be able to meet the high demand for WholeSoy yogurts either. We know, we are thinking the same thing, how on earth is this possible and can we get a break?!

Here's a little more insight:

With the huge increase in popularity of yogurt overall in recent years, there aren't enough yogurt co-packing facilities with availability. Plus, with the increase in popularity of WholeSoy, most yogurt co-packing facilities aren't able to accommodate our needed capacity with a 5-day a week yogurt-making schedule. In recent years, using a co-packer has been an ongoing struggle not only for us but for many other yogurt companies who are unable to meet growing consumer demand because there just aren't enough existing yogurt manufacturing facilities with availability.

But rather than give up all together, we're taking a huge exciting leap - we're building our very own yogurt making facility from the ground up! A completely dairy-free facility too!!!

It has been our long standing dream here at WholeSoy to have our very own yogurt facility. With our own yogurt plant we will have complete control over the entire process, not to mention our own destiny.

We have never pursued this venture in the past because building a yogurt manufacturing facility from the ground up is a hugely expensive undertaking, particularly for a small independent company like us. The challenges of the last few months, however, have made it clear that having our own yogurt facility is critical to our survival.

So, we're ready to take the plunge and are gearing up to finally make this dream become a reality!


About our very own yogurt facility

We currently make our non-GMO, organic soy base (the first ingredient in every cup of our delicious yogurts) in our own state-of-the-art facility in Modesto, CA. Over the next few months we will transform this soy milk plant into a complete yogurt facility. The process will involve obtaining certifications, coordinating installation and calibration of all the necessary equipment and much more.

 

WholeSoy yogurts return this Fall

Due to this exciting change in course, our hope to have yogurt back on the shelves in August isn't realistic. We have already started with the first steps toward the new WholeSoy Yogurt facility and we'll work quickly, but we are going to take the time to get every part right. We are aiming for the return of WholeSoy products this fall.

We'll keep you posted along the way, including you in every step of the process on our blog, and on Facebook with pictures and updates from our staff and even from Ted Nordquist, the founder and CEO himself!

 

You mean the world to us and so we come to you with many more apologies for the unavailability of WholeSoy. We're doing everything possible to keep the same independently owned and operated WholeSoy & Co. going, so you all can enjoy your favorite soy yogurt again this year. Again, sincere appreciation for all of the encouraging messages you've sent our way during this difficult time. They help remind us of why we're here—because of all of you—and that gives us the perseverance and courage to continue.

 

Thank you!

- The WholeSoy & Co. Team

 

WholeSoy is proudly independently owned and fiercely dedicated to making the best tasting vegan soy yogurt on the market! All our products are Non-GMO Project verified and use only US grown, single-source, organic soybeans.



 

write-congressIf you have yet to share the following with us, please feel free to do so now, as the following information helps a whole lot. Just in case your favorite store is on the fence about making space for WholeSoy again in the near future:

 1. Where do you want to see WholeSoy yogurts carried again? Include the name of the store (city & state, if possible), please.

 2. Why is WholeSoy the yogurt for you and/or for your family?

    Your soy yogurts are so much tastier than the few we have been able to track down since someone put a kink in your pipline! We'd love to see them return to Whole Foods, Raleys, and Safeway in Reno/Sparks. We will be keeping every good wish flowing your way.

    Best of luck in the transition and new facility! I am disappointed we won't be able to enjoy your yogurt for a couple months but I know the wait will be worth it.

    I think it would help to ensure the stores who used to carry your yogurt are aware of the schedule and reason for delay. We buy your yogurt at multiple Whole Foods in Napa, CA; Chapel Hill, NC; and Durham, NC and Weaver Street Market in Chapel Hill, NC; Carborro, NC; and Hillsborough, NC. Since they stopped carrying your products in April, I have been checking in with them periodically and I always hear a different story. Two days ago, the purchaser for the Chapel Hill Weaver Street Market told me you were out of business, there would never be any more Whole Soy Yogurt, and they were switching to Silk. I told him I thought you were just moving facilities but he was insistent. It would be a shame to loose stores based on misinformation.

    Again, best of luck to you from a vegan family of 4.

      Hi Nicole,

      Thank you for the words of encouragement and support! Also, thank you very much for alerting us about your local store. We have been sending almost weekly updates to all our retail store contacts and distributors who are very much in the loop with our situation.

      Unfortunately, not every single person at the grocery store level receives the memo at times about every single shortage matter. We called the store directly to correct their information as well. Please feel free to alert us if this happens again. We're happy to address the issue.

      Thank you!

    I would love to have Publix grocery stores in the southern metro Atlanta area carry Whole Soy. We are moving from LA to an area where there is no Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Sprouts, etc. anywhere near us. My 1 year old loves your yogurt and has a dairy allergy, so we will be very sad if we can't get it in the future. We have been missing it the last few months!

    Now I know why I have been searching fruitlessly for your yogurt. I miss it tremendously, and can't wait for it to be available again. My favorite flavors are peach and plain. I would love for it to be carried in Stop and Shop in Morris Plains NJ, in Grass Roots in Morristown NJ, in Whole Foods in West Orange and Madison NJ, and in Publix and Whole Foods in Boca Raton Florida.
    All good wishes to you on your transition.

    OK, last night I had a dream that I was savoring my breakfast of unsweetened plain yoghurt. Unfortunately it was just a dream; it is my perfect pre-swim workout food. But I am feeling your pain as well. I wish your entire team good sleep throughout the next six months. I appreciate all your hard work and look forward to seeing you front center in the stores. I'd love for you to continue selling Whole Foods and Sprouts in West Los Angeles & Palm Desert/La Quinta area. Also Jensons in Palm Desert. Thanks for the updates, and when the time comes, let us know so we can hound the dairy managers.

    We would love to see WholeSoy&Co. vanilla and plain yogurts again at Stop&Shop stores in Newtown, CT and Southbury, CT, as well as at FoodWorks in Monroe, CT.
    My son Matthew, who is five, is allergic to dairy (as well as eggs, peanuts, and tree nuts). WholeSoy&Co. is the only soy yogurt that we have found that does not contain any dairy ingredients and that he likes eating. His favorite flavors are vanilla and plain -- I hope that you continue making them without any changes in the recipe, once the new facility is up and running.

    While we are disappointed at the delay, we eagerly await the return of your yogurts as a regular part of Matthew's diet.

    Best,
    --Vera :)

    Now that we know how hard you are working to bring us the products we love, I wager your customers will be more loyal than ever once you are back online. I for one will buy more wholesoy than ever when I can. The best way to ensure that the good guys survive is for consumers to vote with their dollars. I for one will be voting for Wholesoy, and often.

    Why not continue with your less than ideal co-packer until you're up and running? I bought some of that yogurt when it appeared on the shelves last month. It tasted fine and it seems like a better idea to hold onto your market share through sales (even if only a fraction of normal volume) rather than promises that will most likely be broken through no direct fault of your own. And speaking as a customer, I'd prefer to be able to buy one or two flavours sporadically than nothing at all for 6 months.

    If you think it will be December 20, then you won't be online before May 1st. How will that affect your cash flow? Get product on the shelves now. Bid higher on the co-packer capacity and raise prices up to 15%. Your customers aren't poor. We'll accept the hike. You can afford to pay more, but the competing bidders for co-packer capacity can't. You'll take a volume hit for the short term, but at least you'll have product out there to sustain the brand, and earnings. And nothing like the volume hit you're experiencing now. Structure your co-packer contract with 180-day cancellation provision on their end and your option to taper off production beginning May 1. Bid what you need to in order to get the terms you need to operate smoothly. You weren't afraid of a higher price point before, and in that environment, WhiteWave discontinued its 32-oz containers. You lead a charmed life, but you can't assume it will last forever. If you can't get product on the shelves, then you risk awakening WhiteWave, Danone, or a new player.

      I completely agree that you should do whatever is necessary to restructure your production partner contracts and the first "Anonymous" posting on this topic is spot on. Don't assume you won't lose a lot of market share over this. Yes, if your competitors do not improve their products people may return to Whole Soy ... but as Anonymous astutely notes, you risk awakening a new player.

      Your yogurts are vastly better than the competition in flavor and texture BUT my husband has already happily moved on to just using soy milk for his morning granola & fruit routine. I wish you the best but agree that what will be nearly a year with no Whole Soy available is likely to freely give customers away to the competition.

    I have been waiting for your unsweetend plain yogurt for weeks now. I have to have dairy free yogurt and have not had any since yours has been out of stock. I'm waiting but its been difficult. I buy 6 in a case every week from my local health food store. Whatever you guys do, please don't change this product. It's perfect the way it is. It agrees with me it's all natural, no chemicals. Please leave it as it is and we appreciate all your'e doing to get this to us as soon as possible. It's a great product. I'm lucky to have found this.

I shop at trader joes and whole foods in Santa Rosa, Food for People in Guerneville , Ca. If you have increased capacity, the wait will be worth it! Previous to your catastrophe, these store would run out of unsweetened regularly...good luck, you make wonderful products!

    Prior to becoming a vegan I practically survived off of yogurt. So, I missed it as a food staple- but wouldn't dream of eating dairy again and found soy alternatives disgusting.
    I'm so passionate about your yogurt that I often spread the word that it is the ONLY edible soy yogurt- in my humble and very opinionated opinion!
    I love that you are building your own facility, and am actually really excited to have been pushed to find out more about the company behind the product by it going missing so suddenly and mysteriously! Keep up the good work, I'll be standing by!

    First off, good luck to WholeSoy in your pursuit to fire up your own, new yogurt production facility. I am rooting as hard as I can for you to succeed!

    Before I get into the dirty details of my full soygurt life history ;) , what I love the most about WholeSoy Yogurt is the creamy texture, flavor, and consistent quality of it. I also love that it is organic and non-GMO. And I believe it should be carried in every grocery store in the land. :)

    About 14 years ago, I made the switch to become a vegan, because of my love for animals. And soon afterwards, very fortunately, I found WholeSoy Soy Yogurt, the vegan version of yogurt, and I was in heaven. And ever since then, your WholeSoy yogurt has been my favorite yogurt, by far.

    But now that my beloved WholeSoy yogurt is not available anymore, I miss it very much. :) And I will most likely be buying even more of it once it becomes available again to try to keep it from ever disappearing again. :)

    My favorite yogurt flavor is, by far, the Apricot-Mango flavor. Here is the listing of my favorite WholeSoy flavors, in order of preference:
    1) Apricot-Mango
    2) Strawberry-Banana
    3) Lime
    4) Lemon
    5) Peach
    6) Cherry
    7) Strawberry
    8) Blueberry

    So the stores I would most prefer to have stocking WholeSoy Yogurt again are, in order of preference, Sprouts, Whole Foods, and Basha's, in Mesa, AZ and Chandler, AZ.

    But as I mentioned previously, my dream is for every grocery store everywhere in the USA to stock your wonderfully tasty soygurt.

    I wish you all the best of luck in these difficult times! And rest assured I will be buying WholeSoy Soy Yogurt once again, once it becomes available again. Because WholeSoy Yogurt is, and will always be, the yogurt-of-choice for me.

    And as they like to say these days, I hope you can "Keep Calm and Carry On." ;)

    Thank you so much everyone at WholeSoy & Co. for keeping up the good fight for us soy users!!!

    My son has a dairy allergy and is an incredibly picky eater. He knows your product not only by the container but by the taste. He hasn't eaten yogurt since you stopped production! To be honest, we have tried putting another soy yogurt into your container and he knows the difference!!

    Our family is super happy to hear about your newest endeavors. We wish you nothing but good luck from here on out and look forward to seeing your products on the shelves again soon!

    First, thank you for,unlike your competitors, being upfront and telling us exactly what it going on. Like others above, I have been nearly catatonic without my Whole Soy (smiling, but it's not far off!) and have annoyed health food and major stores endlessly up and down the central Atlantic coast. Please be nice to Paradise Health Foods in Viera, Fl, who have valiantly brought me cases of Plain or Vanilla as often as possible; also Fresh Market in Vero Beach, and Publix in Viera, Melbourne, (FL) down the coast. Not to mention outlets in CA's Mountain View, Palo Alto, et al, including Northern Virgina. What happens is that the dairy managers have NO idea why they get something they ordered or not.I talked to a man yesterday who was frustrated beyond belief at Whole Foods in Mountain View. I think paying attention to Dairy Managers makes a huge difference in getting your product to the shelf and easing the tensions that develop in situations like this. If it makes their jobs harder, they get annoyed and it goes down from there. My life so depends on you and your yogurt, I volunteer to represent you there, if that helps. Your product is exceptional, people need it - you are doing good in the world. God bless your efforts. Sincerely, JB

    Stores in the Cleveland/Akron, Ohio area: Earth Fare (Fairlawn) and Kriegers (Cuyahoga Falls) were my primary stores; also bought Whole Soy at Trader Joes and While Foods (Beachwood) and Seven Grains (Tallmadge).

    I never thought, when going dairy-free, that yogurt would be one of the things I missed the most! I ate regular yogurt every day - but more because I thought I should, than because I liked it. But I found that I actually missed it! Having tried every non-dairy yogurt option available in this area, I can agree with everyone else on this site that Whole Soy is definitely the best. The apricot-mango is my favorite flavor, and I buy a lot of the plain. I can't wait until I can have some again!

    I can't wait to see Whole Soy back in Cedar Park, TX and Leander, TX at H.E.B.! I've been dairy free for over a year now and have tried EVERY other dairy free option available... they're disappointing at best. I used to eat Whole Soy at least once a day and now that I'm pregnant, it is ALL I feel like eating. :( I check every time I go to the store to see if it's returned yet. I've been encouraged by the fact that there is still an empty space on the shelf with a "Whole Soy" yogurt marker, but am looking forward to that day that the space is filled! Best of luck to you all for a speedy return!

    I have been buying your products in MA - at Whole Foods, Stop and Shop, and Wegmann's (Wegmann's is the only place in my area that carries the big container of plain!). I miss the yogurt terribly. I have switched to others (coconut yogurt , almond yogurt, etc.) but the consistency is no where near as good as Whole Soy. So looking forward to it being on the shelves again - best of luck with the new facility start up! looks like you have quite a cheering section here!

I would like to see it return to Whole foods in Middletown, NJ and Harmony Foods, also in Middletown nj both 07751 zip.
    We will continue to wait as patient as we can, and I will be buying a case as soon as I get my hands back on it again!

    I look forward to the return of Whole Soy to Whole Foods Market, 1765 California St. San Francisco. I have tried other soy yogurts (disgusting!) almond milk and coconut milk yogurt (meh). I could tolerate eating them, but who wants to eat something that is just tolerable? Whole Soy Yogurt (the sweetened plain is my favorite) is an enjoyable treat that is good for me. I can't eat dairy yogurt, so please hurry and finish your new facility!

I'm so sad to be without my yogurt for so long but glad to hear you'll be back. But at 5 months pregnant, I REALLY wish it were sooner! :-) I've tried all the other soy yogurts and yours are BY FAR the best tasting. We also buy them because they're organic and non-GMO, gluten free and free of funky ingredients. Whole Soy is a staple in our house. We miss you and will be eagerly, loyally awaiting your return.

    I agree with an earlier post. Can an email alert be put out when you are shipping again?
    My local stores have switched to other soy brands, none of which are worth eating. It doesn't do any good to pester my stores about carrying your brand again until you are actually shipping.
    My favorites are all the berry flavors. I can't wait for it to return to Bellingham, WA, as I usually bought 10-12 a week.

    Dear WholeSoy Team:

    As a fan of your product, I must say I miss your yogurt dearly!!! I look forward to seeing all of the delicious yogurt flavors back on the shelves soon.

    Big food corporations, who have the funds to build their own manufacturing plant but choose not to, ignore the consumers’ need to segregate certain food production to avoid cross-contamination. As a vegan mom with a vegan son, I applaud your efforts of owning your own facility and taking control of your own destiny. It is a huge expense for a small independent company like yours but because you’re taking on such a challenge to give us peace of mind when buying your product it’s just another reason why I am such a loyal consumer.

    GO WHOLESOY!!!

Congrats on the plant - glad for the dedicated facility! So important to those of us with severe allergies. Our little boy has an anaphylactic allergy to dairy, even in tiny quantities, so we have NOOOO dairy whatsoever in our home. We use your yogurt in baking a lot, besides just eating straight, so needless to say we REALLY. MISS. YOUR. YOGURT. Please hurry. How can you make it so delicious, and everyone else make it taste SOOOOO bad? It's survival food for us with severe allergies.

I've been updating people about your change of facility and directing them to your blog... people are very thankful for the info and everyone talks about their loyalty to WholeSoy!

    After all this time, I can assure you have NOT lost your loyal customer's... been trying some of your competitors and nothing even comes close to WholeSoy, it is hands down the best! Just tried a new brand at WFM (a woman's name that starts with N) and yuck! the worst soy yogurt ever, its so bad I'm returning it. Please come back soon!

It also greatly improved my digestion and overall sense of wellbeing. Needless to say my body has been missing it terribly and I'd love to see it available in the Shop Rite and/or Kings in Stirling NJ, Stop and Shop in Berkeley Heights NJ, and in Target grocery locations.

    I am a bit confused and concerned. Your Vanilla was back on the Whole Foods shelf here in Portland over a month ago. I bought 3 tubs figuring everyone would snatch up all the Vanila as it came in. I figured that would tide me over till you were fully up and running. But Whole Foods never got any more and of course I know more about what is going on than their employee in the yogurt department. So I need to ask, why did it start and stop. You indicte the co-pack cannot keep up, but it appears to have completely stopped. What's going on?

    Holy smokes I never thought I'd see the day when there was a run on vegan yogurt. Whole Soy is one of the few brands to make unsweetened yogurt AND the larger container size (Silk does not). You guys are also the most prevalent manufacturer so without you, most stores simply do not stock vegan soy yogurt. Normally I have yogurt with cereal as my afternoon snack which bridges the gap between lunch and evening workout. Please don't forget about us in the Midwest. We need you in the Whole Foods in the Chicago stores. We wish you best success with the new plant and anxiously await your return to market!

    I check every few days to see if WholeSoy Yogurt is back on the shelves here. Two stores in Pullman WA (Safeway and Dissmore's IGA) and two stores in Moscow ID (Rosauer's and the Moscow Food Coop) carried it, with the best selection at the Moscow Food Coop. The Coop and the Rosauers (aka Huckleberry's Fresh Market) have started carrying Nancy's Soy Yogurt. All have posted your message about production and left the shelf space open. The Winco Foods in Moscow carries Silk, and even though I like to shop there, because they are employee-owned, Silk's new version is not very good. I will be so happy to see WholeSoy back on the shelves!

Please get the word out asap as I would hate to see you replaced by Silk as their product is inferior as well as inconsistent, not to mention walmart carries them which says everything bad about them. I am not positive but believe you make the vanilla soy yogurt Trader Joes carries. I miss it miss it miss it. Also for stores market district in Pittsburgh area. The place is so behind the times. It is really hard to get quarts there of Vanilla and plain soy yogurt. I will be back as a loyal customer. I have told every one to hang in there for your product.

    Please include Whole Foods Markets and Sprouts Market among your distributors in the Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas area. I would love to see Costco as a distributor, also! I do not (will not) purchase Silk products anymore. I tried Nancy's soy yogurt, and it tasted horrible.

    As Eastern Orthodox Christians, our family are vegans for the greater part of every year. Your soy yogurt long has been "a regular" on the grocery shopping lists. I need the product for baking, making smoothies, cooking, and for eating "as is". Almond milk yogurt is enjoyable, but is not sold in large tubs. I'm not enamoured of coconut milk yogurt.

    I miss you terribly! There really isn't anything else that compares to WholeSoy! The very few other, hard to find, soy yogurts are all are owned by dairy companies (even Silk), and all share a line with dairy, some even contain hidden forms of dairy (Stonyfield): all of which are concerns for those with dairy allergies and vegans. Almond and coconut are no substitute for Whole SOy because they don't contain complete protein and they also have more sugar!

    Why WholeSoy is the best and I won't buy anything else until you return: basically the only nonGMO soy yogurt, organic, vegan, gluten free, you guys aren't owned by giant dairy companies, friendly for allergies, you guys keep your customers informed on social media and have some of the best customer service out there! You guys basically rock on everything that a food company should be and only wish there were more honest and transparent food companies out there like you.

    I'm ranting but anything to help you return to Whole Foods and Kroger. Miss you.

      I found 4 containers of strawberry at the Flagship Randalls in West Lake (Austin), TX, 3300 Bee Caves Rd. I talked to the manager and he said it was a new item for Randalls and he planned to continue to order it. He thought that other Randalls would be ordering it too. Yea! I told him how great WholeSoy was and encouraged him to order other flavors and the quart sizes too. I explained that a new facility was being built to keep up with demand and urged him to continue to order it even if it was not always available.

    My son is a Bean lover of all kinds of Beans. He loves to tell people how your yogurt is made healthy for him and the environment. With you guys been gone for so long he tells people that the others is ok but if they want the best they should wait until they try the Whole Soy Company Yogurt they are the BEST! He has recently read the whole process that you go through on your website and now he has decided he WANTS to be Teds friend since he gets to try every batch. He is only five and has decided that he want to work for Whole Soy Company and be Teds friend. At the Store yesterday the store employee said your yogurts were recalled and that because of the recall in April you went out of Business. And Bean said that Ted would not let that happen because Ted would have no more of his to try and that you were building your own yogurt facility. The guy ignored him and so PLEASE tell the stores by us your coming back so Bean can not have to defend you!

    He only likes the best Soy YOURS, almond milk is not what he likes. But since you guys have been gone he has had to adventure into the almond and coconut milk yogurts. He has a very sad tummy at times and they do not sit nearly as well as your soy yogurts. He has had to up his medication just to handle the other yogurts.

    I was very disappointed when I couldn't find you so I ate yogurt And then I began to look for the strawberry banana and discovered it was no longer on the shelf and then I said well I'll just buy the strawberry and put my own bananas in it but I will certainly be glad when you return on the shelf I really love the yogurt and I get at least a dozen little packages everytime I go to the shop so please hurry and come back I asked someone in the store about the yogurt and they told me something it really it went over my head is really amazing how people can't tell you the truth and I'm sure you all did tell them about what happened as far as the factory is concerned I did buy the Nancy's yogurt that was the worst yogurt I have tasted in my whole life please hurry and put the other yogurt back on the shelf is a truly miss it thank you so much!!

    I am so glad to hear your products will be coming back! I'm vegan and your yogurt is my favorite! For the time being I will continue eating the higher-in-fat vegan yogurt all the health food stores stock, but I'll definitely be happy to buy Whole Soy again when it's available! :)

    I've been patiently awaiting the return of my all time favorite yogurt on earth, and will continue to wait as long as need be. In the meantime though I decided to substitute it with another brand to tide me over. After many weeks of searching I located another soy yogurt at my local New Seasons Market. I was overjoyed and got one of each flavor to try! As soon as I got home I sat down with one of these cups of creamy delight and proceeded to shovel it into my mouth with a sense of glee... It didn't take long for me to realize that this was not my soy yogurt of choice!!! I threw half of it out and pouted for the rest of the day. The next morning I decided to give a different flavor a go. Convincing myself that the previous day I must have grabbed a bad cup of yogurt that had surely spoiled I opened it up. Only half a spoonful was procured from the cup and quickly added back to it. "What is this foul creation?" I said out loud to myself while my feline companion shot me a confused look beside me. I decided that this "substitute" just would not do. I can confidently say that there is NO substitute for my Whole Soy & Co. soy yogurt and there never will be! I do hope to see my favorite soy yogurt back on market shelves soon. Not only for the sake of my own taste buds, but for others that will no doubt discover what I have about other brands of soy yogurt. I wish you all the best of luck on your dreams of having your own facility!!!

    Thank goodness! I was so sad when I noticed your yogurt slowly disappearing from my local grocery stores, especially since the HEB I always go to just started stocking your unsweetened soy yogurt--my absolute favorite. Your unsweetened soy yogurt is the best; I want a non-dairy yogurt without added sugar or flavoring, which is so hard to find. Since I don't eat dairy, your yogurt is my preferred way of getting probiotics, and I love to eat it as is, on top of oatmeal, with cereal or fruit, with nut butter, etc. I NEED your yogurt to come back so I can test my new frozen yogurt machine with your yogurt to create soy froyo! :]

    Please bring back the unsweetened soy yogurt to HEB in Spring and/or Houston, TX! or at least Kroger.

    Glad things are moving along, but I think everyone would feel a little more at ease if you could provide another update. As the mother of a milk (and many other foods) allergic child, I can sympathize with the many other posters who feel they have no viable alternative to Whole Soy. My two year old misses the chicken salad and other dishes no longer available to him without "his" yogurt.

    I share the eager enthusiasm of all who hope the transition to the new plant is smooth and that you're up and running even sooner than you project!

    Be honest everyone. Wouldn't you LOVE to have your customers try your competitor's products and then state publicly that they'll wait...however long...to purchase your products when you get it back into the market(s)?

    Add my family to the list of loyal customers to do just that. Every week, we go trudging to our health food store (which happens to be the flagship Whole Foods store in Austin) (Hope you're reading this Whole Foods buyers!!!) and stop to look for the return of Whole Soy and Co's yogurt. My girlfriend even admitted today that even though she doesn't eat yogurt, she passes by the section to see if "it's baaaack" and has to look a 2nd or 3rd time to make sure it's not in a different slot. She knows a way to a mans heart. ;)

    With all the love being shown here to Whole Soy and Co, I'm wondering if I should show some compassion to the other non-dairy yogurt companies. If you're listening, I want to say I've really tried to like you (fill in the blank). Multiple times for each brand during this gap in production. Just to let you know, I'll be breaking up with you and going back to Whole Soy's product when they return. Hope you understand.

    Best,
    Jordan

    I would like to add my voice to what others have been saying. I LOVE your yogurt. It is by far, hands down, the best non-dairy yogurt in existence. Nothing else even comes close! It is thick, rich and creamy, with the best flavors. My favorite flavor is lemon. My favorite yogurt that you make is your plain, unsweetened. I use it in place of sour cream. The Tofutti sour cream is expensive and too thick (and less healthy). I have been having to make do with it, though. There is no other non-dairy, unsweetened yogurt available. I buy mine at Marlene's Market and Deli in Federal Way, WA. I anxiously anticipate the return of your yogurt to my store.

    Waiting patiently (sometimes impatiently) in San Diego.
    Used to purchase Whole Soy yogurt in Jimbos and Sprouts at multiple locations across northern San Diego County depending on other shopping I had to do and to get more variety.
    Gave up trying other yogurts in the meantime and decided to just wait. Nothing else measures up to taste, texture, and smoothness of Whole Soy brand.
    Please keep us up to date for the expected date that it will start rolling again. If you can start to narrow it down to a month, like November, it will keep my hopes up.

    I have been in 3rd-degree Whole Soy yogurt withdrawal for months now. I used to take a Whole Soy yogurt to work every day for my morning break and never tired of the fantastic flavors. There's just no substitute that's reasonably priced. My extreme Whole Soy withdrawal is only manageable with the knowledge that the product will soon reappear in our local stores. Glad to see that WS is taking over its own destiny.

    Also curious about an update. You guys said you would update your blog during this process, and yet the last blog post is nearly 2 months old . . . ?

    We're all just curious because you guys make the best vegan yogurt in the world!! We can't wait to see you on the shelves again :)

    Whole Foods in Chattanooga and Earth Fare in Chattanoga. It is simply the BEST BEST BEST non-dairy yogurt available. I have had serious withdrawal from its lack of availability. Please do not make me continue to eat the (not as good) alternatives. So glad you are building your own facility because we never want to go through this again!

    Thank you all for your encouraging comments and feedback! We posted a quick update on our blog: http://wholesoyco.com/blog/item/wholesoy-returns-this-fall-october-november

    We anticipate we'll be making WholeSoy yogurt again late October to early November. We'll have more regular updates and a clearer timeline when we get closer to making soy yogurt!

    Thanks so much for your continued support and patience!

    I wouldlike to see your plain yogurt in Wegmans in Dickson City PA (Scranton area). It's the best-tasting yogurt of any kind,soy, dairy or other. Actually, i think it's the only really good yogurt,. Please hurry.

    We love the large size plain and had started ordering four at a time. We bought it from Whole Foods in the Western Philly 'burbs; we'd also love to find the big size at Giant Food stores.
    Please hang in there!

    Along with many others, I am truly missing WholeSoy yogurts in the Syracuse, NY area (Wegmans stores, NatureTyme). I feel you have made a good business decision and will be rewarded for it. You appear to be running your business with integrity. I look forward to seeing the large sizes of plain, unsweetened and vanilla yogurts again on the shelf. Meanwhile, I will wait patiently, occasionally making my own yogurt, or purchasing the small containers of Silk to get through this dark time. Once it is over, all this will soon be forgotten.

    The Whole Soy yogurt is the only non-milk product that has the right flavors and texture, I've tried all the others. Please contact the Harris Tetter, Trader Joe's, and Whole Foods stores in Wilmington, NC. I'm allergic to milk and milk by-products, hope to see delicious yogurt here soon. Florence

    My spouse and I love your yogurt and are eagerly looking forward to its return. I'm disappointed to see that it will be delayed another month or two, but I'm glad you're building your own facility and I wish you the best of success in financing, building, and getting it up and running. I'm hoping that by having control of your own packing facility you'll be able to offer larger sizes and even additional products. I'd love to be able to buy the unsweetened plain in a full quart container, rather than the 24 oz size, and I'd also love to be able to buy a true soy kefir. Is there any chance you could add those to your product line? Thank you.

    Still eagerly, anxiously waiting for Whole Soy Yogurt's return to Fairway on 86TH Street in NYC, have scanned through the long chain of emails, noticing dates from July to early October. A post on progress in preparing the new facility would help sustain faith that loyal taste support will be rewarded. No doubt the process of building and acquiring signatures consumes time and attention. Messages from across the country should make your motive real. Asian philosophy suggests perseverance. Holding on.

    I loved your 32 ounce plain soy yogurt for cooking and eating. I also enjoy the single serving varieties. I have multiple allergies and health conditions. I miss your yogurt. I had looked into to trying to make my own because there is no one out there in the industry I can eat other than your yogurt. I appreciate the lengths you have gone to. My husband who does not have allergies absolutely loves your yogurt over any other brand. I shop at Whole Foods in Sandy, Utah, Smiths in Layton, Utah, Harmons in Orem, Utah, and Good Earth in Orem, Utah. I love to shop Costco and can imagine it taking off.

    First time I have checked back in a long time. I am a caregiver to a medically fragile 5 year old who takes all her nutrition via tube feedings. Due to severe dairy allergies, soy yogurt is the key ingredient in her blends. O Soy has been the only option available for a long time. She recently saw her allergist at children's hospital and he is concerned over her elevated dairy
    Levels. O soy contains dairy. The interruption in production is not merely an inconvenience. It has been a significant health compromise and has contributed to vomiting her tube feeds on a daily basis. So very frustrating and alarming. Please stock whole foods in Dedham as a top priority. A child's quality of life depends on it.

    I would love to see your yogurt return to the Whole Foods Markets in the St. Louis area. I would also love to buy it at Green Earth Grocery in Edwardsville, IL. Many places have begun selling coconut yogurt instead, and I don't like it. And your brand is the only brand of unsweetened plain vegan yogurt that I've found.

    You guys make the best, creamiest, non-gelatinous yogurt. There is no other that even comes close. I am looking forward to your return! Please restock the Cincinnati stores of Whole Foods, Rookwood location, as well as Trader Joes, Kenwood location.

    My family is dairy free and my four children, as well as the adults love love love having your plain yogurt as dessert with fruit very night as well as parfaits in the mornings. I buy the quart sizes weekly, when in stock.

    My 6 mo. old son is allergic to anything cow-milk based. So, to give him protein I wanted to start giving him yogurt (as he is not able to eat meat yet and I REFUSE to give him meat from a jar!!), but I'm unable to find ANY brand of soy-based yogurt that is PLAIN (as he cannot have chunky fruits and he SHOULD not have sugar). PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make sure that you reserve some shelf space in ShopRite and Trader Joe's (Northern New Jersey). THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!

    Well, one good side effect is we have learned how to make our own soy milk and turn it into home-made soy yogurt. It is not that hard, but takes time and kitchen space. So, we anxiously await your return!

    We are in Pacific Palisades CA and have been looking weekly also for the glorious return of WHOLESOY & CO. We love all your flavors. We are vegan and your product is better than the real thing, for so many reasons!!! When you come back I'm buying a month's supply. Any chance we can somehow contribute or get stock in your company??? I know you'll make a killing when you return!! I expect to see your yogurt at Whole Foods, Ralphs, Gelsons, Trader Joes, Vons, Albertsons, COSCO, Viva La Vegan, anywhere that sells yogurt. Sometimes a good thing comes out of a bad situation and you will come out stronger than ever because of your setbacks!!! Much success to you all! And to a Happy WholeSoy & Co. New Year!!
