McDonald's to Keep Organic Coffee Line in 600 Stores
McDonald’s first introduced Newman’s Own Organics coffee roasted by Green Mountain Coffee, a segment of GMCR, to its restaurants in New England and Albany in October 2005.
Created exclusively for McDonald’s, Newman’s Own Organics Blend is a combination of light and medium roasts with a smooth body and clean finish. The blend is available in regular and decaffeinated and is served as both hot and iced coffee.
McDonald’s also offers Newman’s Own Organics Blend in three iced coffee flavors in New England and Albany: Hazelnut, Vanilla, and Caramel.
“It has been gratifying to see consumers embrace our organic coffee, and we look forward to its continued growth,” says Nell Newman, co-founder and president of Newman’s Own Organics.
Larry Blanford, president and CEO of Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc., says, “When we began our relationship with McDonald’s in 2005, our goal was to provide the highest quality coffee to customers in New England and Albany. We are excited to continue working with McDonald’s to deliver a selection of great tasting coffee products.”
