Orrville, OH – The J.M. Smucker Company has increased the list price for the majority of its packaged coffee products sold in the United States.

The products affected primarily consist of items sold under the Folgers, Dunkin’ Donuts, and Café Bustelo brand names, the company said in a news release.

Prices increased an average of six per cent on impacted items in response to sustained increases in green coffee costs. The company’s K-Cup pods were excluded from the price increase as were coffee products sold in its Dunkin Donuts stores.

Dunkin’ Donuts brand is licensed to The J. M. Smucker Company for packaged coffee products sold in retail channels such as grocery stores, mass merchandisers, club stores and drug stores. This information does not pertain to Dunkin’ Donuts coffee or other products for sale in Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants.
