10 STiR tea & coffee industry international Jacobs Douwe Egberts In May Joh. A. Benckiser (JAB Holding Co.) and Mondelez International announced their intent to combine their respective coffee businesses into the world's largest pure- play coffee company. The new company, to be known as Jacobs Douwe Egberts (JDE), will be the largest pure-play coffee venture in the world. Annual revenues would top $7 billion with a global coffee market share of 16.3%, according to Euromonitor International. Mondelez, which owns Maxwell House, Tassimo and Jacobs Coffee, Carte Noire, Grande Mere, Kaffee HAG, Kenco and Gevalia, has the top selling brands in 10 countries including France, Sweden, Poland and Austria. The firm holds second place in Germany, Greece, China, Ireland, Russia and Denmark. The company split from Kraft in 2012 and maintains its largest holdings in snack foods. It is valued at $64 billion. Mondelez is the world's No. 2 coffee marketer earning $3.9 billion last year. In 2012 JAB paid $10.4 billion for D.E. Master Blenders and now owns Douwe Egberts, Senseo (single-serve machines), Pilao, Merriild, Friele, Harris, Moccona, L'OR and Pickwick Tea. DMB sells coffee in 45 countries and leads in Norway, Denmark, Belgium and the Netherlands. The $3.4 billion firm employs 7,500. It is the world's No. 3 coffee marketer. The venture will compete with Nestle, the world's largest coffee supplier. Nestle sells $20 billion a year worth of coffee, about one fifth of its $100 billion annual food and beverage sales. The company accounts for 22.7% of the $81 billion global coffee market, according to Euromonitor, a market research company headquartered in London.
