Single-cup coffee and tea brewing giant Keurig Green Mountain, Inc. has joined forces with Dr Pepper Snapple Group (DPS) to develop a line of the beverage company’s signature products for the upcoming release of the Keurig Cold at-home beverage system.
“With Keurig Cold, we've leveraged Keurig innovation to make it possible for consumers to create great-tasting cold beverages at home with the one-touch simplicity of Keurig. We're very excited to offer a range of Dr Pepper Snapple’s iconic brands in the system at launch,” said Lori Tauber Marcus, Keurig’s chief product officer, Keurig Cold Systems.
