Coca-Cola Enterprises

Coca-Cola Enterprises
Coca-Cola Enterprises (or CCE) has a rich history of operating in Great Britain. In fact, more than 95% of the four billion cans and bottles we sell each year are made in this country – something we celebrate by proudly displaying a ‘Made in GB’ mark on those products.

We are the biggest soft drinks company in the country, employing around 4,500 people across England, Scotland and Wales at more than 20 sites, six of them manufacturing plants. We are a growth business and last year invested £50m in our manufacturing base, with substantial investments at our sites in East Kilbride, Wakefield and Sidcup. As well as enhancing our productivity and competitiveness, these investments supported our ongoing efforts to minimise our environmental impacts. As a business, CCE is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and water usage, and ensuring it leads the industry when it comes to sustainable packaging.  

We produce 25 different soft drinks brands – the majority of them under licence from the Coca-Cola Company, including the iconic Coca-Cola brand, which is the country’s best-selling soft drink. But we also produce brands for other franchisors including Capri-Sun, Appletiser, Ocean Spray and Monster energy drinks.
