FORT COLLINS - Launched in 2010, Noosa is now one of the fastest-growing yogurt companies in the country.

Noosa grew 260 percent in 2012, added 4,000 retailers nationwide and is looking to continue the upward trend throughout 2013.

What started as a product for Colorado consumers, it has now grown to nationwide distribution in just a few years. 9NEWS visited their new manufacturing facility outside of Fort Collins Thursday morning.

The facility is five-times bigger than the previous facility and the plant manager says they're already planning for another expansion soon.

Co-founder Koel Thomae discovered "Queensland Yoghurt" while on vacation in Australia. She loved it so much she sought out the owners of the company and met to discuss bringing the product to the United States.

In true Aussie style, they met for lunch and lagers and hatched a plan to bring the yoghurt to American consumers. That is where Noosa was born.
