Originating from the Turkish yoğurt (meaning fermented or thick milk), there have been alternate spellings popular over the centuries, including yoghurd, yogourt, and yahourt. The spelling ‘yoghourt’ on our packs was common in the early 20th century and is still on most of our labels today.
The spelling evolved again around 2000 to ‘yoghurt’ and is the most common expression today, so to keep things simple and make it easy for people to find us on the internet, we use ‘yoghurt’ on our website and social media pages.
Recently though, we have decided to phase out the extra ‘o’ to make it easier for people to search for us, so we’ll now use the more common spelling ‘yoghurt’ online and eventually our lids and labels as well but that change will take some time. Our new product labels already reflect this.
We appreciate your patience while we transition.
