We believe that after three decades of crafting yogourt for Canadians, making it better means staying true to yourself. That's why we've always strived to create the most pure and true yogourt, known as Balkan style. You can taste this dedication in all of our creamy and delicious yogourts.


After three decades of producing Balkan style yogourt we know that natural reigns supreme. Our Astro Original Balkan 6% yogourt is made with only three natural ingredients: milk, cream, cultures and develops a firm set naturally, giving you a thick and refreshingly creamy yogourt.


Yogourt is one of the simplest, and most versatile foods. Be it Balkan, Greek, Stirred with Fruit, Probiotic or Drinkable – we have a flavour and texture to satisfy every craving.


We proudly use dairy from Canadian farms because, like you, we want to know exactly what goes into the food we make. Sourcing milk from Canadian dairy farmers allows us to maintain our commitment to quality. The milk used in Astro yogourt does not contain any artificial hormones or antibiotics.*

Help Us Make Breakfast a Reality for a Hungry Child

Chasing dreams should be part of every child’s day. Going without breakfast shouldn’t be.


We are so grateful to Canadians who support Toonies for Tummies during our annual store campaign and, year-round, online.

You may know on April 16th, the Federal Government confirmed plans to support student nutrition programs. Specifically, the budget has announced the creation of a National School Food Program, which will provide $1 billion over five years to Employment and Social Development Canada, Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada, and Indigenous Services Canada, starting in 2024‑25.

You may wonder what does this government funding mean specific to the need and our efforts to fundraise?

Without a doubt, we continue to need your support. While many student nutrition program leaders are encouraged by the incremental government support, many have taken to the news and social media to confirm even with this support, funding gaps will persist.

The Grocery Foundation's Vision, that no Canadian child goes to school hungry, remains fully intact. Our work continues and remains vital to support hungry children through their school’s student nutrition program. There is no change whatsoever in our focus, our mission, or our reliance on your support.

The programs we help fund are universal in nature. That means all children who require a healthy meal have access. Those on the front lines of these programs affirm their positive impact and positive halo beyond the day’s nutrition, from attendance, behaviours to the school community and mental health. The programs you help fund also support foundational nutrition knowledge and social skill building, as many programs include mechanisms for student involvement in menu planning, food preparation and serving of food to peers.

Thank you for choosing to support hungry children in your community, nourishing their health, well-being, academic success while fostering their school community. With your continued support, we will continue to help dreams take flight and nourish over 3,000 programs and neighbourhoods, yours among them.
