Greek Yogurt Maker Sues Kroger For Fraud, Breach Of Contract, Stealing Trade Secrets

May 2, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
U.S. natural foods company Tula Foods said it is suing The Kroger Co. and flavor supplier Edgar A. Weber & Company (aka Weber Flavors) alleging that Kroger failed to meet manufacturing specifications for Tula’s Better Whey of Life yogurt, a Greek yogurt product line. Besides its retail stores, Kroger manufactures products for other companies under the name Inter-American Products. The complaint says Kroger knew it wasn’t meeting Tula’s production specifications, releasing “poor-quality, unappetizing yogurt into the market anyway”. The complaint also alleges that Kroger misappropriated trade secrets, using them to make its own brand of Greek yogurt.
