NEW YORK (AP) — Chobani plans to expand beyond its Greek yogurt cups this summer as it faces intensifying competition in the fast-growing category.

Starting in July, the company plans to offer Chobani Oats, which is yogurt mixed with fruit and oats; a dessert called Chobani Indulgent; and new flavors for kids.

Later this year, the Norwich, N.Y.-based company will also introduce savory dips, Chief Marketing Officer Peter McGuinness said. Chobani has been testing such offerings at its cafe in New York City’s SoHo neighborhood.

The privately held company has grown quickly over the last several years, riding the surge in popularity of Greek yogurt, and is the biggest seller of Greek yogurt in the United States.
