Green Mountain Coffee And Kroger Bring Fair Trade To Grocery Shoppers With Great Coffee, Good Vibes Giveaway

Stocks in this article: GMCR

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. (GMCR) (NASDAQ: GMCR), a leader in specialty coffee and coffee makers, and Kroger, one of the world’s largest grocers, continue to share the good vibes on the heels of Fair Trade Month by giving shoppers another reason to choose fair trade coffee. Through the Kroger Great Coffee, Good Vibes Giveaway, GMCR’s Green Mountain Coffee ® brand and Kroger will give one loyal shopper the chance to see acclaimed musician and Green Mountain Coffee fair trade ambassador Grace Potter or Michael Franti live at a concert venue of the winner’s choice within the United States.

In October, Green Mountain Coffee announced its "Great Coffee, Good Vibes, Pass It On" campaign for Fair Trade Month. Kroger has collaborated with Green Mountain Coffee to spread the message about fair trade in select Kroger, Fred Meyer and QFC stores through in-store fair trade educational materials and the opportunity to win prizes through the Kroger Great Coffee, Good Vibes Giveaway and Instant Win Game. To drive consumers to stores, select households were sent a direct mailer with a coupon for $2.00 off any 12-count box of Green Mountain Coffee K-Cup ® packs. The mailer harnesses Kroger’s loyalty card data via dunnhumby, an insights provider.

Through November 11, 2012, Kroger shoppers who purchase two boxes of Green Mountain Coffee K-Cup ® packs will receive a coupon for their next shopping trip and a special “Good Vibes” code to be redeemed on Facebook for prizes. Prizes include $10 Kroger gift cards, branded mugs and key chains, Grace Potter song downloads, coupons, and the grand prize, a trip to see either Potter or Franti in concert.

The grand prize includes two concert tickets, round trip airfare for two to the concert’s location, and two nights’ hotel accommodations. For more information, please visit the Kroger Good Vibes Giveaway tab on the Green Mountain Coffee Facebook page at Facebook.com/GreenMountainCoffee.

“We appreciate Kroger’s support of fair trade as well as its commitment to partner with GMCR to grow the single cup category by expanding its merchandising sets and taking on new GMCR K-Cup ® pack items,” said Don Barberio, Vice President, In Home Sales, GMCR’s Specialty Coffee business unit. “Kroger has helped us amplify the message to coffee fans that fair trade provides high quality coffee, and helps to ensure a higher quality of life for coffee farmers and their families.”
