J.M. Smucker boosts coffee portfolio

ORRVILLE, Ohio — J.M. Smucker said it has completed its acquisition of the coffee brands and business operations of Rowland Coffee Roasters, a privately owned, Miami-based company.

Rowland Coffee's products primarily are sold under the leading Hispanic Cafe Bustelo and Cafe Pilon brands, J.M. Smucker said.
