The Facts On Club Coffee Lawsuit Against Keurig

SIngleJoCoffee.com carries the Club Coffee innovative soft coffee pod for all it's great brands and blends.  The main benefits to this 'real-filtered' brewed single serve options are countless, but the most important aspect is that Club's Soft Coffee Pod is more environmentally friendly than plastic cup options currently available in the market.  

Club Coffee (like us awesome canucks here at SingleJo) is a 100% owned Canadian Company who has been in the coffee roasting and manufacturing business for over 100 years.  In fact in 1939 they developed the Imperial Blend to be served during the visit of the King and Queen of England to Canada.  Recently Club Coffee announced their collaboration with University of Guelph to bring a fully 100% Compostable Single Serve Coffee and Tea Pod to Market in 2015

Club Coffee has learned the value of delivering innovation for customers and consumers and thrives in an open competitive marketplace – and we have learned there are times when you have to take a stand for your customers. This is one of those times. Club Coffee is suing Keurig Green Mountain, the single-serve industry giant, to defend consumer choice and the kind of innovation, lower prices and legitimate competition that an open market delivers.

"John Pigott, CEO of Club Coffee said it took legal action after two events in the spring of 2014 - First, the company was told by Kroger Co., the largest U.S. grocer and a $20-million-a-year customer, that it had reached an exclusive agreement with Keurig and could no longer buy Club Coffee’s products. Then a Canadian Tire representative told Club Coffee an agreement with Keurig prevented the retailer from talking to Club Coffee." - quote from ERIC ATKINS 's Globe and Mail Article "Keurig faces $600-million Canadian lawsuit over coffee pods"

    Following a news article on the lawsuit, I discovered your products and am now exclusively buying Club Coffee to support you against those abusive business practices. The world needs innovators like you and perhaps this other company forgot that it grew up out of innovation and should keep innovating instead of trying to kill the competition…

    Reviewed your video that you now have the new pods to work in the Keurig 2.0 with white outer rim. Don’t see how to order on this website. Photos shows regular K cups with one color top covers.

    I am on your web site because I have just read about your law suit. I do not own a Keurig coffee machine and take every opportunity to chastised my colleagues who produce so much waste with those little K-cups. I am, however, looking to reduce my daily coffee costs (I buy two large brewed coffees per work day) in a “green” manner, thus my interest in you forward-thinking company.
