Case study: Premium iced coffee

Challenge

Our customer included Kerry in their efforts to create a premium, comprehensive iced coffee program. The intention was to elevate the guest experience, ultimately driving traffic and sales. Simplicity was imperative. Our cold brew coffee solution needed to have minimal steps, consistency across various beverage formats and nominal storage space requirements.

Solution

Knowing the marketplace insights and trends as well as the customer’s goals and operational needs, the Kerry team presented a cold brew coffee solution and a variety of flavors. Intrigued by the taste profile and operational ease, the customer chose to further pursue changing their coffee program to cold brew.

The Kerry Difference

The short concept-to-national launch lead time was achievable due to the solution being a “collection” product, in addition to the incredible collaboration between crossfunctional teams. We leveraged work previously completed, which allowed for samples with short turnaround times, small run quantities for the customer’s stair-stepped market store testing and quick pricing. Our unparalleled solutions allowed us to assist our customer with a nationwide launch.
