The J. M. Smucker Company Announces Coffee Price Increases

/PRNewswire/ -- The J. M. Smucker Company (NYSE: SJM) announced today that it increased the list price for the majority of its coffee products sold in the United States, primarily consisting of items sold under the Folgers®, Dunkin' Donuts®, Millstone®, and Folgers® Gourmet Selections® brand names. Prices will increase an average of 11 percent on impacted items.

The increase in price is driven by sustained increases in green coffee costs. The Company is currently in its quarter-end quiet period and, therefore, will answer investor related follow up questions during its June 9, 2011, fiscal fourth quarter earnings conference call.

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 press release does not pertain to Dunkin' Donuts® coffee or other products for sale in Dunkin' Donuts® restaurants.
