Keurig, Caribou Coffee Renew Partnership

Keurig Green Mountain and Caribou Coffee have renewed their partnership with a 10-year agreement for the manufacturing, marketing, distribution, and sale of Caribou Coffee in Keurig pack formats for Keurig consumer and commercial hot brewing systems.

As a part of the agreement, the companies will begin offering Caribou Coffee in carafe formats for the Keurig 2.0 brewing system and Keurig Bolt carafe brewing system.

“Today’s announcement recognizes the tremendous success of the strategic partnership between Keurig and Caribou Coffee,” said John Whoriskey, president, U.S. sales and marketing at Keurig. “Caribou Coffee has been an important part of the Keurig family of brands, and we’re excited to continue our relationship and bring Keurig users the Caribou Coffee they love in carafe formats at home or in the office.”

Caribou Coffee and Keurig first entered into a partnership in January 2007. With this announcement, the companies have extended and broadened their partnership in the United States and Canada to offer Caribou Coffee in carafe formats compatible with Keurig’s new 2.0 brewing system for the home and Bolt carafe brewing system for commercial settings.

“The expansion of our partnership will provide our guests with more convenience as they’ll be able to enjoy their Rainforest Alliance Certified cup of Caribou Coffee through Keurig K-Carafe and Bolt packs,” said Matt Spanjers, vp/business development and strategic partnerships at Caribou Coffee. “To date we’ve sold more than one billion K-Cup packs and we’re thrilled to continue to develop our successful partnership with Keurig.”
