Starbucks selling made-in-USA coffee and mugs
Starbucks' new Indivisible line is setting out to create more U.S. jobs.
Starbucks Corp. said it will start selling coffee blended and roasted in the U.S., as well as U.S.-made mugs and thermoses, in an effort it says demonstrates "its continued commitment to help end the jobs crisis in America."
In a statement, the Seattle coffee giant (NASDAQ: SBUX) said it will sell the U.S.-made products under the "Indivisible" label, and with each sale, it will donate money to the Opportunity Finance Network for the Create Jobs for USA Fund, which it says helps create and retain jobs across the country.
The American-made products Starbucks sells include:
• "Indivisible" blend coffee, with the back of the bag featuring the name of the U.S. city where the blend of Kenyan and Ethiopian coffees were roasted. Cups of the coffee are now also being sold at Starbucks stores;
• "Indivisible" ceramic mugs and tumblers. The mugs are made in Ohio and the tumblers are made in Chicago.
