 INTERNATIONAL YOGURT CO. REPORTS EARNINGS
 PORTLAND, Ore., Jan. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- International Yogurt Co.,


(NASDAQ: YOCM), Portland manufacturers and wholesalers of YO CREAM frozen yogurt, reported net income of $206,621 on sales of $5,688,071 for the 10 months ended Oct. 31, 1991. The close of the company's new fiscal period is Oct. 31. Accordingly, audited financial statements are available for the above reported results.
 John Hanna, the company chairman and chief executive officer, stated that the substantial increase in profits for 1991 occurred even though sales were down because of increased manufacturing efficiencies and improved internal controls. "We've enjoyed several years of rapid sales increases," Hanna said. "The pause in the growth, which we attribute to the general state of the economy, has allowed us to position ourselves for the next wave. That is, we expect to maintain our margins during the next surge in sales and bring in the profits."
 Management also reported that one of its new products is now being nationally sampled by the trade. "We call it Soft Scoop," Dave Hanna, the company president said. "We can distribute this nonfat frozen yogurt product at a higher temperature than other frozen desserts, so it opens up a new arena of sales for us." Hanna stated. Management believes that this new product will enjoy wide acceptance in the food service industry. The product can be packaged in various sizes, including a single serve for schools and other institutions. "We began sampling it in December, and the orders have started already," Hanna reported.
 When asked about the newly proposed federal standards for frozen yogurt, Hanna said that the company is pleased with the potential of properly defining yogurt. "A viable culture is needed for real yogurt," Hanna said. "Too many frozen yogurt products in the marketplace have insufficient culture counts. We welcome tight standards because our products contain the beneficial cultures of yogurt at adequate levels."
 The company's frozen yogurt products are sold nationally through a system of sales representatives and distributors and recently in Western Europe through a licensing arrangement.
