DENVER — Ahold stores, including Giant Carlisle, Giant Landover and Stop & Shop, will introduce a new coffee product to select store shelves compatible with the Keurig single-serve K-cup machines, the coffee maker announced today.
Marley Coffee, which produces sustainably grown, ethically farmed and artisan roasted gourmet coffee according to the company, will stock Marley Coffee's RealCup Single-Serve cups throughout select key supermarket chains within the Ahold network. Marley will introduce 3 SKUs to Ahold's array of products, including Get Up, Stand Up (light roast), One Love 100% Ethiopian yirgacheffe (medium) and Lively Up expresso (medium dark).
"The Marley brand stirs up a sense of passion, inspiration and transformation with consumers," commented Rohan Marley, founder and chairman of Marley Coffee. "With our coffee, we are not placing a generic product on the shelf. We have a quality that is unsurpassed, and a 'move-mant' that resonates with consumers worldwide. That's why upscale and forward-thinking companies like Ahold have embraced our products," he added. "We look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship with our new friends at Ahold, especially Stop & Shop locations in New York, which I consider my other home."
Ahold is a Dutch-based international retail company that owns over 3,000 locations, employs 450,000 people globally, and services the needs of 40 million customers in 28 countries every week.
