Scream If You Want More! The Collective Launches Scrumptious And Spooky Spiced Pumpkin Gourmet Yoghurt For Halloween

Wednesday 13 August, 2014
This Halloween, the UK's fastest growing yoghurt business The Collective (www.thecollectivedairy.com) is getting ghoulish with the launch of its devilishly delicious Spiced Pumpkin Limited Edition, available from 18th September and throughout October (RRP £2.39 for a 500g pot). Inspired by that quintessentially autumnal, transatlantic treat, pumpkin pie, The Collective has paired its award-winning gourmet yoghurt with a richly sweet pumpkin compote, textured with the flesh of this seasonal squash and spiced with a blend of ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and a touch of orange zest. A lavish double layer of this strikingly orange conserve is folded through luxurious and thick live yoghurt, made using the best West Country milk for that silky smooth texture and clean, creamy taste that makes The Collective's yoghurts so mind-blowingly moreish. Pioneering to the core, and always daring with their dairy, The Collective is leading the trend in gourmet vegetable yoghurts, with Spiced Pumpkin following the successful launch of the Blackcurrant & Beetroot Edition earlier this year. Spiced Pumpkin flavour is the witching hour's most wicked treat, free from artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. Only 5% fat, it is suitable for vegetarian and gluten-free diets and is packed with lives cultures. The Collective's Halloween Limited Edition will be available from October 2014 in Waitrose, Tesco, Sainsbury's, Morrisons, The Co-op, Ocado, Wholefoods, Booths and Nisa, with an RRP of £2.39 for a 500g pot.

After developing a recipe for the most gorgeous yoghurt that quickly became the bestselling gourmet yoghurt in New Zealand within a year, they decided to share their secret. In 2011 they joined forces with Mike Hodgson and Amelia Harvey in the UK who believed the unique taste, texture and fun positioning was just what the market was looking for. The Collective's aim is to bring excitement, innovation and gorgeous yoghurt to fridges across the UK and now Ireland too. Based on the original New Zealand recipe, but produced in Somerset using the finest West Country milk, The Collective's handcrafted yoghurts are thick and creamy with a silky smooth, clean texture and taste that melts in your mouth. The gourmet yoghurt includes probiotics, has no artificial additives and contains only 5% fat. The Guild of Fine Foods recognised The Collective gourmet yoghurt's great taste by awarding it with two gold stars in the Great Taste Awards, the highest achieved by any flavoured yoghurt and in 2012 The Collective was awarded best new yoghurt at The Grocer Magazine New Product Awards. The Collective was also a finalist in the UK Startups Awards 2013 and The Santander/Smarta Breakthrough 50 Business of the Year.
