Reference is made to the Registration Statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333-261146) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) by Chobani Inc. (the “Company”) on November 17, 2021, together with all exhibits thereto (the “Registration Statement”). Pursuant to Rule 477(a) promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), the Company hereby respectfully requests that the Commission consent to the withdrawal of the Registration Statement, effective immediately.

The Company has determined not to pursue, at this time, the contemplated initial public offering to which the Registration Statement relates. The Company confirms that no securities have been sold pursuant to the Registration Statement.

The Company acknowledges that no refund will be made for fees paid to the Commission in connection with the filing of the Registration Statement. The Company, however, requests, in accordance with Rule 457(p) under the Securities Act, that all fees paid to the Commission in connection with the filing of the Registration Statement be credited to the Company’s account, to be offset against the filing fee for any future registration statement the Company may file with the Commission.

Upon the granting of the Commission’s consent, please send copies of the order withdrawing the Registration Statement to the undersigned at Chobani Inc., 669 County Road 25, New Berlin, NY 13411, Attn: Chief Legal Officer, and to the Company’s legal counsel, Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP, 200 Park Avenue, New York, NY 10166-0193, Attn: Andrew Fabens.
