The most exciting foodie news I have had in a long long time has happened. Fage Total brand yoghurt is now being imported direct from Greece by Kebia Importex in Marrickville, Sydney.
This is big news indeed and it is my favourite brand of yoghurt in the whole world. Read my previous post about my passion for it here.
This is a photo of my haul first visit 10 days ago. Ok I admit went a bit overboard given we are a household of two. But the joy from eating real proper Greek yoghurt ! My oh my. We actually polished it ALL off pretty quickly.
Anyway, it ain’t cheap. But it is a hell of a lot cheaper than a trip to Greece.
The flavoured variety has a clever packaging innovation, whereby you add the little side tub of fruit into the main tub of plain yoghurt and mix it through as much as you like.
I buy the full fat 5% plain yoghurt. That said even the 0% fat is creamier and thicker than anything we can get here in Australia – and all have lower carbs (sugar).
You can buy direct from the factory, or call them to find out what retailers are selling it.

UPDATE 6 September 2013: Kebia Importex told me that they are no longer bringing this product into Australia. Maybe the more people that call and ask about it, might make them decide it is worth considering again.
