Spotlight on Chobani founder Hamdi Ulukaya

Blood Orange Yogurt by tbiley

CNN has a lovely look at Chobani founder Hamdi Ulukaya.

Ulukaya is an immigrant to the U.S., from Turkey, who is  outspoken about his unabashedly pro-immigrant and pro-refugee views. He also puts his money where his mouth is: Some 30% of his Chobani workforce are refugees or other immigrants.

Ulukaya also strives to help refugees through his own nonprofit, called Tent, "mobilizing the private sector to improve the lives & livelihoods of more than 20 million men, women & children forcibly displaced from their home countries."

This quote from Ulukaya is particularly fabulous: "I have nothing against America first, but 'humanity first too,'" he told CNN.

Here's an older CNN story about Ulukaya that's also interesting:
