CBC News - October 01, 2014
An Ontario coffee roaster and grinder is suing Keurig for anti-competive behaviour, claiming it is keeping the price of single-serve coffee pods artificially high for consumers.
Club Coffee`s $600-million lawsuit against coffee giant Keurig Green Mountain alleges the U.S. chain is flouting the rules to maintain a near monopoly and keep single-serve coffee prices artificially high.
"First, their new brewers have what they claim to be “proprietary technology” that rejects any single serve pods not authorized by them," a spokesperson for the company told CBC News in an email. "Secondly, Keurig has used the threat of this lockout technology to coerce retailers into exclusive arrangements to sell only Keurig-controlled products."
When asked for comment on the lawsuit by CBC News, a spokesperson for Keurig Green Mountain said the company could not comment on the complaint because they’ve yet to see it.
