About Maia Yogurt
First crafted in an uptown Manhattan lab, Hamilton’s kitchen, Maia’s early trial runs didn’t include anything hi-tech — simply a double boiler, a heating pad, a beach towel, and some kitchen gear. While the process might sound a bit out of the ordinary, especially with two bachelor roommates, the results impressed even the harshest critics. He was serious about making a difference and enhancing customer’s lives. Together, with the guidance of leading dairy experts, they perfected the formula. In 2010, Maia was unveiled locally to Hamilton’s native Connecticut and New York City stores as the only Less-Sweet yogurt with natural cane sugar, superior probiotic levels, prebiotic fiber and nutrients recommended for moms and their families. Today, Moms across the country are feeding their families our less-sweet yogurt!
