Great brands, great culture, great opportunities. That’s what you can expect at Coca-Cola European Partners (CCEP) in Great Britain. You’ll be part of a team of 3,800 people. They work at our manufacturing sites, in our offices or at our depots, all doing different jobs but sharing a passion for our world-famous brands. These not only include Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, Coca-Cola Zero Sugar and Coke Life, but beverages like Fanta, Dr Pepper, Sprite, Schweppes and Appletiser.
We make, sell and distribute soft drinks for every occasion in GB – that’s more than four billion cans and bottles every year! We aim to grow further, but to do so sustainably and responsibly, minimising our impact on the environment. All of our plastic bottles are made from polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and are fully recyclable. We’re continually looking at innovative ways to reduce packaging waste. We’re extremely careful about our water stewardship. And we’re also encouraging people to reduce their sugar intake.
Did you know that we make 97% of our products in Great Britain? A fact we're proud to put on our cans and bottles.
Our GB locations
CCEP is a local business, firmly rooted in the communities where we operate. Our products are made at six sites across GB, from East Kilbride in Scotland to Sidcup in Kent. Our Distribution Centres are 24/7 operations. And our warehouses optimise the Automated Storage and Retrieval System. ASRS is the most advanced automation technology in logistics – and the sheer size and scale of the cranes and racking systems at our sites have to be seen to be believed!
Distribution, Operations and a Contact Centre – this is CCEP in Milton Keynes. The site is a direct supplier to McDonald’s. Our Operations Centre purchases, distributes and refurbishes all our cold drink equipment throughout GB, so every cooler, vending machine and dispensing equipment comes from here. And our Contact Centre is open 364 days a year, fielding calls ranging from equipment service requests to new business enquiries.
Pemberton House in Uxbridge is our CCEP HQ and home to a number of GB business functions: Sales & Marketing, Field Sales, Finance, Legal, Public Affairs & Communications and HR. We’re handily located near Uxbridge underground station, which serves the Metropolitan and Piccadilly lines, and the local shopping centre.
Covering an area bigger than 15 football pitches, Wakefield is the largest plant in CCEP and the biggest soft drink plant in Europe. Open 364 days a year, 24/7, and across eight manufacturing and packaging lines, the site can produce 420,000 cans and 116,000 bottles per hour, and produces over 1 billion Litres every year. The warehouse here holds 28,000 pallets, and the combined typical annual throughput is over three million pallets.
