Folgers Launches New AromaSeal Canister; An Innovative 'First' in Coffee Packaging.
CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 21, 2003
Folgers(R) introduces a revolutionary new package for coffee, the AromaSeal(TM) Canister, a specially-designed plastic canister that provides fresh aroma and taste day after day and is easy to use. Folgers is the first manufacturer to package roast and ground coffee in a plastic container. Available nationwide beginning in September 2003, the new packaging will ultimately replace all Folgers metal coffee cans.
One of the benefits of the AromaSeal(TM) Canister is a unique snap-tight lid and one-way valve that helps preserve freshness and seal air out (U.S. patent pending). The new canister has a specially designed, easy-grip handle and peel-off seal for greater convenience. It is also easy to use and safe to open; consumers need not worry about can-openers or sharp edges.
"As America's #1 coffee, we're proud to be pioneers in the industry with the introduction of the AromaSeal(TM) Canister," said Jim Hartung, Folgers brand manager. "This innovative canister was designed to give our consumers the convenience and fresh mountain grown taste and aroma that they desire."
The AromaSeal(TM) Canister is lightweight, stackable and will initially be available in the 39 oz. Classic Roast, Folgers most popular size and blend.
