Mars Drinks Launches Latest Innovation in 1 Single-Serve Office Brewer Series

MARS DRINKS™ FLAVIA® Creation 500 Brews Up New Options for the Office

Philadelphia, PA (January 18, 2015) MARS DRINKS™—a 100 percent workplace-dedicated segment of Mars, Incorporated – today announced the availability of MARS DRINKS™ FLAVIA® Creation 500 (Creation 500), the latest advancement in the company’s line of premium, single-served brewers for the workplace. MARS DRINKS’ Creation 500 blends stylish design with enhanced drink and menu display options designed to deliver optimal performance.

Creation 500 features a new compact, modern design with both plumbed and pour-over options for easy placement in multiple office locations, from the boardroom to the breakroom. Creation 500 brews premium cappuccinos, lattes and mochas, plus coffees, teas and hot chocolate each in less than a minute at the touch of a button. The new brewer combines reliable performance and hassle-free maintenance with enhanced LCD menu display options for a more intuitive experience, including the addition of Spanish language options, making it easier than ever for people at work to create and enjoy a cup of their favorite brew.

To satisfy the drink needs of people at work throughout the day, Creation 500 also features an option for brewing soup. The company’s patented brewing process ensures no cross-over in flavor from one drink to the next, so coffee tastes like coffee and soup tastes like soup.

“The coffee brewer has become the modern day water cooler, where coworkers meet to take a break, share ideas and catch up,” said David Flochel, General Manager of MARS DRINKS North America. “Our MARS DRINKS FLAVIA Creation 500 is designed for the needs of today’s modern office.
