The Coca-Cola system is a global business that operates on a local scale – bringing the global operations of The Coca-Cola Company, which owns the brands and manufactures syrups and concentrates, with local bottling partners who manufacture, package, merchandise and distribute the final product to retailers and wholesalers. Coca-Cola Enterprises is one of the largest independent bottlers – we operate across seven countries in Europe.

We believe that we can grow our business sustainably through innovation, investments, and local and responsible production.

Coca-Cola Enterprises and The Coca-Cola Company - What we do

coca-cola enterprises

We make global brands, but we are a local business. We’ve been in some of our communities for more than two generations. 90% of the drinks we sell are produced and marketed in the country in which they are consumed.

Our local contribution includes the jobs we provide, the investments we make in our factories, the taxes we pay and the community programmes we support.  

Coca-Cola Enterprises

Every day we produce over 30 million cases of drinks for our customers, from large retailers to small independent retailers. 

Our seamless supply chain delivers consistency from product design and sourcing through manufacturing to logistics and distribution – it is a model that is built around the needs of our customers.

When our products hit the shelves, we work with our retail partners to grow the soft drinks category through effective merchandising. 

Our sales and marketing operations are built upon a deep understanding of how people shop, data on shopper behaviour.  As the digital landscape changes the way we live, we are innovating fast to ride the wave of the digital shopper revolution.

We do business responsibly and sustainably and we are on a journey to create a sustainable business for the future.   

Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability is at the heart of everything that we do - from how we source our products and packaging, how we manage our manufacturing, sales and distribution, and how we work with customers and consumers to close the loop in recycling our packaging.
