CORRECTED-Italy's illycaffe signs coffee pods partnership with JAB unit JDE

Oct 8 (Reuters) - Italian coffee maker illycaffe has agreed a partnership with Jacobs Douwe Egberts, a unit of Luxembourg-based conglomerate JAB Holding, to produce illy-branded coffee pods.

The agreement comes as competition intensifies to capture a growing market for drinkers looking for quality espresso.
