Coca-Cola and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters: Friends not enemies?

|By:, SA News Editor

A comment from Coca-Cola (KO) CEO Muhtar Kent yesterday at a beverage conference in NYC looks like a positive development for Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR), notes KeyBanc.

Kent said single-serve dispensers are an "opportunity" not a threat to Coca-Cola's business.

A partnership between GMCR and KO could heat up the "cold" side of the single serve business.
