Chobani Commencement

Chobani Commencement

Hamdi Ulukaya, the “Turkish king of Greek yogurt” in America, gave the commencement address last Sunday at the State University of  New York at Albany, of which he is an alumnus. Mr. Ulukaya, who built Chobani into a billion-dollar business in five years, has been called “the Steve Jobs of Yogurt.” He’s also been called a yogurt thief by his ex-wife, who says he swiped the Chobani recipe from Fage yogurt.
