Top 10: TreeHouse Foods' snack shakeup, Chobani's plant-based yogurt and Chipotle's diet bowls

News that TreeHouse Foods will restructure and conduct a review of its snack unit was the most read story this week among SmartBrief food and beverage readers.

Unilever unveiled its Love Home and Planet line of 38 sustainable dish, laundry and surface cleaners available exclusively at Target, and Coca-Cola rolled out two Smartwater products exclusive to online retailer Boxed.
