LONG ISLAND CITY, N.Y., Sept. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Distinguished specialty food trade magazine, The Gourmet Retailer, has chosen White Coffee's "Organic Naturals Single Serve Cups" as one of the best new products of the year for 2013. Featured in the August/September edition of the on-line and print magazine, White Coffee's Organic Naturals Single Serve Cups were selected from nearly 1,000 new products submitted in the competition this year.
"The convenience of the single cup has been recognized," says Jonathan White, Executive Vice President of White Coffee Corporation. "Our organic blend is an exciting addition to the specialty coffee marketplace."
A comprehensive screening process that included judges from The Gourmet Retailer, Progressive Grocer and Convenience Store News trade magazines selected the winners. Products were judged on three criteria: taste/functionality, innovation and value. To be eligible, products were required to be introduced between March 2012 and June 2013.
This is only the second time The Gourmet Retailer magazine has honored the best new products with an "Editor's Pick" competition. The magazine, the industry's most comprehensive source of news and information on merchandising, store operations/education, new products, and trends, has been serving retailers in the specialty food industry for over 30 years.
White Coffee Corporation introduced the Organic Naturals Single Serve Cups coffee line in March 2013. Featuring 10 coffee varieties available in a new "single cup brew," Organic Naturals Single Serve Cups are packaged in a recyclable container compatible with the Keurig® system and similar coffeemakers.
The "Organic" line is completely allergen-free, gluten-free, and non-genetically modified (Non-GMO). "French Roast," "Full City Roast," "Rainforest Blend," "Breakfast Blend," "Mexican High Grown," "Peruvian," "Hazelnut," "French Vanilla," "Sea Salt Caramel" and "Chocolate Morsel" blends demonstrate the breadth of White Coffee buying and roasting expertise.
The distinctive single cup brews announce themselves as soon as the box is opened. Designed in a new style utilizing recyclable filters, the coffee is dispensed through the sides – not just through a punch hole in the bottom of the plastic cup. The consumer experiences the sight and smell of fresh ground coffee as they prepare the brew.
