Since the first visit from David Cameron in 2010, the second being last year, CCE invested £100million in Wakefield, boosting its manufacturing capabilities with the most innovative and efficient technologies available.
97% of the drinks sold in Great Britain are made here, and we want to keep it that way. That’s why we invested £52 million in our plants across Great Britain.
So, where else are we investing?
In Sidcup, where a high-speed canning line produces 150ml mini-cans and 250ml slimline cans.
In Morpeth new equipment to make glacéau smartwater. British spring water is vapour-distilled before electrolytes are added to give a crisp, clean taste.
In East Kilbride, where a robotic palletiser stacks boxes of our drinks straight on to pallets, ready for distribution.
More at Wakefield. A combined heat and power system will save 1,500 tonnes of CO2 each year – a reduction of 5.6 per cent for the site.
