Berkshire Natural, Northampton, Mass., partnered with Commonwealth Dairy, the Brattleboro, Vt.-based manufacturer of Green Mountain Creamery yogurt, as part of its mission to provide access to healthy snacks in its vending machines.

Commonwealth Dairy crafts healthy yogurts on-site using the finest local ingredients with no artificial colors, preservatives, additives, artificial sweeteners or high-fructose corn syrup. Green Mountain Creamery yogurt is authentic-strained Greek yogurt made from rBST-free Grade A milk from Vermont. These Greek yogurts can be found in Berkshire Natural’s healthy vending machines and healthy snack baskets in locations around New England.

“Yogurt is a delicious, healthy meal-type option. Green Mountain Creamery Greek yogurt is made just a few miles from our warehouse across the state border in Vermont," says David Starr, co-founder of Berkshire Natural. “We have a commitment to the most environmentally sustainable operations. Sourcing local manufacturers is one of our objectives, supporting local New England producers. Commonwealth Dairy contacted us about our healthy product distribution. After tasting their many delicious no-fat flavors, we knew they were the perfect fit. We are fortunate that their operations are so close by. Their yogurt has become one of our most asked for products particularly in offices all around Boston."
