GMCR has a new name

WATERBURY, Vt. -

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters has a new name and logo.

The Waterbury-based company announced Monday it has changed its name to Keurig Green Mountain, Inc.  Shareholders approved the change at the Company's shareholder meeting last week.

GMCR President and CEO Brian Kelley said in a statement that the name change better reflects where the company is today and its future aspirations. "The name Keurig Green Mountain brings together our two strongest brands, Keurig and Green Mountain Coffee, into one single and powerful corporate identity that symbolizes the strength of our business and the unity of our team, while also recognizing our strong heritage," Kelley said.

The company acquired the single-cup brewing manufacturer back in 2006 and it now accounts for a major share of the company's business.
