Panera Bread Launches New Craft Beverage; Merges with JAB
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), April 9, 2017 - Panera Bread Company has announced the launch of a series of
new 100% clean, non-carbonated craft beverages made with no artificial sweeteners, preservatives,
flavors or colors from artificial sources. The new teas, lemonades and frescas will roll out in bakery-cafes along with signage posting the calories and added sugar in each beverage.
Panera is the first national restaurant company to post this nutritional information at the point of pour.
Sugary, chemical-laden beverages are contributing to obesity, diabetes and heart disease in America.
The addition of new craft beverages to the menu provides guests with a broader range of clean options at Panera, from moderate to no added sugar compared to sugar-laden beverages.
In 2010, Panera led the industry by voluntarily posting calories on its menu boards, and posting added sugar in beverages is the next step in the company’s progressive effort to improve transparency.
“With up to 75 grams of sugar – just one 20 oz. soft drink contains more than the recommended daily
amount of added sugar,” Shaich said in a release. “While we won’t tell people what they should drink, we want to provide real options and real transparency—and we’re challenging the industry to join us.”
The new line of non-carbonated teas, lemonades and frescas will launch this month in select cities and become available nationwide by September. Made fresh daily and with less sugar than current drink offerings, the new beverages offer a range of sweetness levels:
- New Iced Black Tea and Plum Ginger Hibiscus Tea are unsweetened, with 0 g added sugar
- New Prickly Pear Hibiscus Fresca is lightly sweetened with fruit juice, with 0 g added sugar
- New Passion Papaya Green Tea, Blood Orange Lemonade and Agave Lemonade contain less
than 35 g of added sugar per 20-ounce cup, much less than regular soft drinks
The new beverages are free from all artificial sweeteners, preservatives, flavors or colors from artificial sources listed on the company’s No No List, which is inclusive of 96 separate ingredients and additive classes.
“We believe people deserve to know exactly what’s in their drink so they can make the best choice for
their lifestyle,” said Sara Burnett, Director of Wellness, Panera Bread. “We know more and more guests are looking to reduce their added sugar consumption, and we’re providing an increased number of real, clean options with our new teas, lemonades and frescas.”
Panera Bread Company recently announced a merger with JAB under which JAB will acquire Panera for $315 per share in cash, in a transaction valued at approximately $7.5 billion. JAB is a holding company with premium brands including Keurig Green Mountain, Jacobs Douwe Egberts, Peet's Coffee & Tea, Caribou Coffee Company, Einstein Noah Restaurant, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts and Espresso House.
