CASE STUDY: Data-Driven: Chobani’s Journey Towards Enterprise Data Governance

November 15, 2021

Prerequisite: None

Alexander Mendoza

IT Director – Data and Analytics

Chobani, LLC

In 2005, Hamdi Ulukaya, an immigrant to the U.S., took out a loan, bought an old yogurt plant and founded a yogurt company—Chobani. In Turkish, Chobani means “shepherd,” and the name was chosen to capture the hardworking and compassionate spirit of the mountain farmer.

Fast-forward to today, and Chobani has expanded its portfolio to include oat milks, probiotic drinks, coffee creamers and ready-to-drink coffee, while remaining true to its original mission of providing better food for more people. The company is celebrated for its innovation and growth and for being a values-driven, people-first, modern food company.

Keeping up with that growth takes a lot of people, process, technology and data.

In this session, Alex Mendoza will take you through Chobani’s journey towards enterprise data governance and the quest to make data a true competitive asset to the company. He will be sharing how the data governance program started, the challenges his team encountered, and how they overcame these challenges and will highlight some of the benefits that the program has delivered to the company so far.
