Coca-Cola Great Britain’s online content editor, Sean Kellett, gave an exclusive tour of the amazing office to CNBC as part of its ‘office envy’ feature. Find out all about the secret drinks fridges and rooftop orchard.

At Coca-Cola Great Britain we’re responsible for 20 brands and more than 80 drinks including well-known favourites such as Coca-Cola Zero, Fanta, Sprite, Smartwater, and Oasis. We’ve also just launched two new brands: Fuze Tea, which is a fusion of fruit juice, botanicals and tea extracts and Adez which is a new, delicious dairy-free smoothie made from seeds and fruit.

Welcome to Coca-Cola GB HQ at 1A Wimpole Street

Just down the road from bustling Oxford street is Coca-Cola Great Britain’s London office. Inside, you’re greeted by a four-metre-high light sculpture created by renowned international sculptor Stuart Haygarth and made from 80,000 acrylic ice chunks.

Further into the building you can’t miss our huge heritage wall, which climbs three storeys. It’s an impressive showcase of classic images and memorabilia from throughout Coca-Cola history, plus specially commissioned new pieces. This covers everything from ‘The Pause That Refreshes’ print ad from the 1940s, and a 1970 Velvet Underground album whose cover and inside sleeve artwork featured artist Andy Warhol’s Coca-Cola bottles, to the London 2012 Olympic torch.

We’ve also got digital screens dotted around the office showing our new marketing campaigns. Our latest features the timeless icon Marilyn Monroe, and celebrates the heritage, iconicity, and great taste of Coca-Cola Classic.

Did you know?
Coca-Cola made history as the first soft drink in space in February 1985 on the Space Shuttle Challenger – a reproduction of the Space dispensary from Discovery is featured on the heritage wall.

The office has 21 flexible meeting rooms with video conferencing facilities, so our 200-plus employees that work here can easily connect with colleagues in Europe and around the world. There’s also open-plan collaboration areas to catch up, brainstorm ideas, meet with agencies or simply enjoy a cuppa.

In every corner of the office there are fridges full of drinks from the Coca-Cola portfolio, and a Coca-Cola freestyle machine which lets you create your own drink from international flavours from around the world. We also have a secret formula fridge, which is full of sample products that have yet to be released.

Sustainability is at the heart of our business and our goal is to be an industry leader in sustainable water use, energy and climate protection – including in our working environment. Recycling facilities are available on every floor and the office is packed with energy-saving and water-efficient features, including high spec insulation, recycled Emeco “Navy” chairs; rainwater harvesting and coolers that use natural refrigerants.

On the roof terrace we’ve also got a green living wall and bee-friendly shrubs, as well as our own apple orchard – the apples are used to make delicious pies, crumbles and chutneys that are served in the Café.
