Keurig Green Mountain and Reily Foods Company have entered a multi-year manufacturing and distribution agreement in the United States and Canada that includes several coffee and tea brands sold by the latter.
According to Keurig, the agreement includes New England brand coffee, French Market brand coffee, and Luzianne brand iced teas that can be used in a variety of Keurig formats. The companies plan to launch the new licensed K-Cup pods in fall 2015. All Reily Foods K-Cup pods will be marked with the Keurig Brewed seal indicating the product has passed rigorous testing, assuring the quality, taste, and integrity consumers expect from the Keurig brand, noted the company.
“Consumers consistently choose the Keurig brewing system for its quality, simplicity, and unsurpassed variety, with over 400 varieties from 60 brands available in the system,” said John Whoriskey, president, U.S. sales and marketing at Keurig. “We welcome Reily Foods as a partner and look forward to offering Keurig consumers their favorite New England coffee, French Market coffee, and Luzianne iced teas made with the quality and consistency of Keurig.”
Based in New Orleans, Reily Foods Company has been offering an assortment of coffees and teas since 1902.
“We are proud to partner with Keurig,” said David Darragh, president and CEO of Reily Foods Company. “We look forward to having our brands of coffee and tea more broadly available to users of Keurig’s brewing systems. The quality of our products matched with the convenience that the Keurig system delivers brings real benefits to our consumers.”
