Chobani gets shown the door by Whole Foods

|About: Whole Foods Market, Inc. (WFM)|By:, SA News Editor

Whole Foods Market (WFM +0.3%) says it will stop selling Chobani yogurt in order to make more room for organic products without genetically modified organisms.

The development is interesting because Chobani is a juggernaut in the hotly-contested Greek yogurt market and frequently mentioned as a buyout or IPO candidate.

Danone (DANOY) owns the Stonyfield Farms brand which still makes the Whole Foods cut and could get a nice lift from the yogurt shakeout.
