Mondelez International's Tassimo system is one of the fastest growing single-serve systems in Europe. The company's aim is to create a billion dollar global Tassimo brand. The launch of Carte Noire and Jacobs compatible capsules is an important part of the company's coffee strategy and marks another significant investment in Europe's $2.8 billion single-serve category 1.

Roland Weening, Global Vice President, Strategy, Marketing and Innovation, Coffee, said: "Our new range of compatible capsules represents increased competition in the fast-growing single-serve coffee sector and is a significant commercial opportunity for Mondelez International. With the launch of these capsules and our stepped-up activities and investment in Tassimo, we will cement our position as the fastest growing single-serve business and the world's second largest coffee company."

Weening added: "We will continue to give consumers great-tasting and sustainably-sourced products across Europe at a price that is competitive. Jacobs and Carte Noire are among Europe's favorite coffees and our capsules will provide consumers with the freedom to prepare the coffee they love in the manner they like."

Mondelez International's range of coffee products includes roast and ground, single-serve and instant coffee under leading brands such as Jacobs, Carte Noire, Tassimo and Kenco. These, along with Tang powdered beverages, represent 17 percent of the company's turnover. Carte Noire is the leading premium coffee brand in France along with a number of markets in Central and Eastern Europe and is steadily building a premium position in other markets. Meanwhile, Jacobs is one of Mondelez International's billion dollar brands and traces its premium coffee origins to 1895 in Germany.

Mondelez International is committed to sustainably sourcing 100 percent of coffee beans for its European coffee brands by 2015 and recently announced a further commitment through its "Coffee Made Happy" initiative. This will see it invest a minimum of $200 million to empower one million coffee farming entrepreneurs by 2020. The program is designed to help the next generation of farmers through training and capacity building, as well as attracting new generations to the small-scale farming sector.
