Orang Utan Coffee

MILTON KEYNES, UK – UCC Coffee UK & Ireland, has announced a new line up and a striking new design for its Orang Utan Coffee brand, which supports conservation of the critically endangered Sumatran Orangutan with every pack sold.

The updated range includes a new roast Canopy Climb – a 100% single origin arabica coffee with a light, smooth taste – and the introduction of new formats including coffee bags, Nespresso-compatible capsules, and larger out of home packs of its existing coffee, which has been renamed Dark Forest.

A striking new design for Orang Utan Coffee has also been introduced to further reinforce its sustainable approach to coffee and to ensure it stands out on shelf.

Through the Orang Utan Coffee brand, UCC Coffee aims to provide long-term support for the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme – which protects orangutans and their rainforest habitat – and for the coffee farmers in the Gayo Highlands region of Northern Sumatra.

Orang Utan Coffee donates €0.50 for each kilogram of green bean coffee to its farmers, with a further €0.50 going to the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme.

Dan McGrath, marketing director, UCC Coffee UK & Ireland comments: “Year on year, consumers are increasingly interested in sustainable and responsibly sourced products, and Orang Utan Coffee offers delicious variety that can be enjoyed anywhere. Not only is there an inspirational story behind the brand that resonates with consumers but the coffees rate very highly in flavour and quality. The coffees have been specifically made to improve an operator’s coffee offering, both in final product and in sustainability credentials, making it easy for customers and stockists to do their bit.

He continues: “The re-brand and line extensions have come at an exciting time as we invest significantly into innovation and continue our commitment to the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme. We’re thrilled to offer more variety, convenience, and a 100% free-from palm oil product range – it’s a coffee that does good with every sip.”
