Post partners with Dunkin’ for Cereal
At Post Consumer Brands, Josh Jans, Brand Manager of Cereal Partnerships, explains that cereal and coffee are the two most consumed breakfast items.
In addition, Dunkin’s Vice President of Retail Business Development Brian Gilbert adds that Americans enjoy Dunkin’ coffee each day, and we’re glad to be part of the partnership. With our new cereals, getting the right flavor was a top priority, and we think we’ve come up with something that tastes creamy, rich, and delicious.

Caramel Macchiato and Mocha Latte cereals from Post Cereals pay homage to these two coffee favorites. We are looking forward to seeing how the new products will be received by the customers.
Why they Enter in the Cereal Business
Dunkin’ launched two new cereal flavors made with Dunkin’ coffee in July of 2020 in partnership with Post Consumer Brands. A new line of cereals inspired by Dunkin’ fans’ favorite flavors – Caramel Macchiato and Mocha Latte – is now available nationwide.
This cereal was inspired by the increasing demand for coffee drinks, along with a desire to offer something unique. There’s nothing like a good cup of coffee or a bowl of cereal to kick-start the day.
How their Cereal is Packaged for Consumers?
Dunkin’ Donuts had a historic year in 2019. With their name changed to Dunkin’, the company offers hot coffee, sweet doughnuts, tasty sides, and snacks, and in addition to that, you can also now have cereals as well.
Not only will their packaging be updated, but they’ll also have new products and offerings. In addition to reducing the number of letters on their bags, cups, and custom printed cereal boxes, Dunkin’ has added playful symbols and engaging wording.
Dunkin’ becomes a friendlier and more likable place for customers not only to experience in-store but also take away with them. Wasteful packaging choices have a serious impact on our environment, and most people are now acutely aware of this.
In addition to using recycled materials in its packaging, Dunkin’ promotes sustainable practices, including packaging that is compostable once used.
This is a good example of how Dunkin’ shows that businesses can provide customers with attractive, sustainable, and cost-effective packaging.
The popular coffee and baked goods chain Dunkin’ was founded in 1950. A leader in the coffee companies in the United States, Dunkin’ Donuts is a company that offers a wide selection of hot and iced coffees, donuts, bagels, and muffins, as well as decaffeinated coffees. The coffee category of Brand Keys has ranked Dunkin’ at No. 1 for 14 consecutive years for customer loyalty. In 41 countries, the company has more than 13,000 restaurants. Founded in Canton, Massachusetts, Dunkin’ belongs to the Dunkin’ Brands Group.
