Weight-loss yogurt withdrawn


SWEDISH dairy co-operative Skanemejerier has withdrawn its weight-loss Mavel yogurt after disappointing sales.

The yogurt, which was the first food product to contain appetite suppressant Olibra, was “simply too expensive”.

Skanemejerier informed biotechnology group Scotia, which owns Olibra intellectual property rights, earlier this month, reports the Financial Times.
