MISSISSAUGA, ON, Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - RealCup™ single serve capsules passed another milestone today as the beverage industry's newest player in the single-serve market celebrated the 25 million mark in unit production.


Launched in August 2012, RealCup™ capsules are now available to consumers in a variety of coffee and tea blends on,, and at select retail outlets in Canada and the U.S. The RealCup™ brand is also available to Office Coffee Services and Foodservice providers across North America as single-serve capsules become increasingly popular in business, restaurants, and bars.

Mother Parkers drew on 100 years of experience and innovation in the coffee and tea industries to develop RealCup™.
