Dunkin' Donuts announced that it will partner with Coca-Cola Co. to launch new bottled iced coffee at US supermarkets and other stores next year.
Coca-Cola will manufacture, distribute and sell the Dunkin' Donuts drinks, according to Dunkin' Donuts, a division of Dunkin' Brands Group Inc., said Thursday on National Coffee Day.
This product will be the first for Dunkin' Donuts in the ready-to-drink coffee category that brings in $2.3bn in annual sales, according to Nielsen. Neither company would discuss the financial terms of the agreement.
Coca-Cola also announced early this month that under its Gold Peak tea brand, the company would sell cold-brew coffee in the US, according to The Wall Street Journal.
After more than a 20-year partnership, rivals Starbucks and PepsiCo developed their partnership even further to market, sell and distribute Starbucks ready-to-drink coffee and energy beverages in Latin America.
