Supervalu (NYSE: SVU ) aims to launch its new single serve coffee pods, which will be compatible with leading brewing systems. Though it won't be a big needle mover for the company, the pods will begin being sold this month at 1,100 locations. This move comes as more of a blow to Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (Nasdaq: GMCR ) . Both companies face uncertain futures, but there's a big probability that GMCR will downsize to a lower cost manufacturer with a narrow margin, with Supervalu possibly selling off to private companies.
