Liberté Baltic yogurt?

Liberté Baltic Set Style Yogourt [sic] has begun showing up on the shelves of Montreal supermarkets. ExoFruits is selling 650-g tubs at a special introductory price of $3.

6% milk fat. Very firm upon opening, with some BB-sized air holes at the top. Smooths out and becomes more fluid when stirred. Good milk flavour with a noticeable tang but no sourness. Creamy texture but not as heavy as the 8%-MF Méditerranée line can sometimes be. Tasty on its own and takes nicely to a drizzle of honey. Ingredients listed as "milk ingredients, bacterial culture." Best-before date about three weeks after it appeared on the shelves. Plain/Nature is the only flavour I've seen.

Thing is, I don't recall seeing anything similar in the Baltic countries I've visited. And there's no mention of it on the Liberté website. Google searches in French and English are fruitless. Anybody know the backstory?
