Nestle buys Texas based Chameleon Cold-Brew Coffee business

Packaged food rivals across the sector from Campbell Soup to Unilever are taking similar steps

Nestle announced its second small coffee acquisition, buying Texas-based Chameleon Cold-Brew as to bolster its world-leading coffee business. Maker of Nescafe and Nespresso said Chameleon is the No.1 organic cold-brew brand in the United States.

Nestle, which took a majority stake in Blue Bottle Coffee in September, is trying to reignite slowing sales by snapping up small independent brands that appeal to younger consumers.

Nestle, also faces a specific threat from JAB Holding, a private investment company that has grown fast through a string of coffee deals in recent years, from mainstream players such as Douwe Egberts and Keurig to higher-end artisanal brands Stumptown and Intelligentsia. Speculation that JAB could acquire Dunkin Brands resurfaced this week, sending shares of that coffee and doughnut chain operator to record highs.

Packaged food rivals across the sector, from Campbell Soup to Unilever, are taking similar steps as health-conscious and brand-savvy shoppers shun traditional big brands while social media helps start-ups to grow faster.

Following criticism for being too slow to react to consumers' changing habits, Nestle is taking steps to improve its performance under new CEO Mark Schneider.
