DENVER, Oct. 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Marley Coffee (OTCQB:JAMN), (www.marleycoffee.com), the sustainably grown, ethically farmed and artisan-roasted gourmet coffee company, will now be sold at all locations of Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage® (NYSE:NGVC), one of the largest specialty retailers of natural and organic groceries and dietary supplements.
"We are looking forward to putting Marley Coffee on our shelves, as this sustainable line of gourmet coffees is a perfect fit with the natural and organic products sold by Natural Grocers," said Kemper Isely, Natural Grocers Co-President. "Since our founding, we have been committed to providing our customers with the highest-quality products at everyday affordable prices, and I am confident Marley Coffee will prove to be a popular choice among our shoppers."
"Natural Grocers' customers are the ideal target market for our coffee," said Rohan Marley, Founder and Chairman of Marley Coffee. "I have long admired this chain's commitment to selling only carefully approved, natural and organic foods that are grown without artificial chemical herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, fertilizers and preservatives. Its efforts to provide exceptional customer service, community outreach and free nutrition education, mirror our mission at Marley Coffee to give back to the communities in which we do business."
He concluded, "This agreement is another example of how Marley Coffee is building traction and gaining recognition in the marketplace. At this time last year, our coffee was sold in 500 retail locations; including Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage, we are now featured in more than 8,500 retail stores. We are delighted to have a presence in Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage's stores."
Founded in Colorado by Margaret and Philip Isely in 1955, Natural Grocers was built on the premise that consumers should have access to affordable, high-quality foods and dietary supplements, along with nutrition knowledge to help them support their own health. The family-run store has since grown into a successful publicly-held national chain that currently has 73 locations in 13 western states.
