DENVER, March 25, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Marley Coffee (OTCQB:JAMN) (www.marleycoffee.com), the sustainably grown, ethically farmed and artisan-roasted gourmet coffee company, is broadening the distribution of its coffee products across the northeastern United States by placing its products into five supermarket chains: Kings Food Markets, Balducci's Food Lovers Market, A&P, Waldbaum's and Pathmark.
Kings Food Markets, based in Parsippany, New Jersey, and Balducci's Food Lover's Market, based in Germantown, Maryland, will carry Marley Coffee RealCups™ and 8 oz Marley Coffee bags in all 31 stores comprising both chains. Kings operates 25 stores in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut; Balducci's operates six stores in Connecticut, New York, Maryland and Virginia. Kings and Balducci's will both carry Marley Coffee's "One Love," "Get Up, Stand Up" and "Lively Up!" blends in Marley Coffee RealCups format and 8 oz Marley Coffee bags format.
In addition, The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company ("A&P"), the grocery chain based in Montvale, New Jersey, will carry Marley Coffee RealCups™ in 125 of its A&P, Waldbaum's and Pathmark stores across the New York City-New Jersey region. These stores will carry Marley Coffee's "One Love," "Get Up, Stand Up" and "Lively Up!" blends in Marley Coffee RealCups format. The products will be sold in freestanding displays located in store aisles.
Rohan Marley, Founder and Chairman of Marley Coffee, said, "Entering these five supermarket chains substantially strengthens Marley Coffee's exposure to coffee customers in the Northeast. With distribution of our coffee blends into Kings and Balducci's, we become a visible presence to some of the most upscale and sophisticated shoppers in the Northeast. Although these shoppers have access to a very wide range of coffee options already, I believe that Marley Coffee's unique blends will appeal to them and gain a significant following among them."
Mr. Marley continued, "At the same time, A&P is an American icon with a history that stretches back to 1859. It is with great pride that Marley Coffee enters into this agreement, which links the Marley name with one of the oldest and largest national supermarket chains, and to its other well-known chains. Millions of customers have come to associate the A&P logo and its other banners with fresh food at reasonable prices. We firmly believe that shoppers at these 125 stores in the New York City and New Jersey regions will soon come to associate the Marley Coffee logo with delicious coffee."
