MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SUPERVALU INC.

Java Delight® products are available in SUPERVALU’s 1,100 traditional retail stores and in independent stores served through SUPERVALU’s Wholesale Division.
“The UnCup pod provides our customers with a premium single serve coffee at an affordable price,” said Sam Mayberry, SUPERVALU’s Vice President of private brands. “It was also important for us to develop a product that is more environmentally friendly and our UnCup single serve pod uses 30 percent less material by weight than the leading national brand pod.
