About Coca-Cola European Partners
Coca-Cola European Partners manufacture, sell and distribute the products of The Coca-Cola Company and selected other beverage brands.
Other bottlers in the Coca-Cola system look after the rest of the world. Sound complicated? Let us explain…
The Coca-Cola Company own the brands, develops new products and produces the marketing and advertising campaigns. For example, when you see Coca-Cola adverts on TV (like the Christmas Truck) or on a billboard – that’s what they do.
As a bottler, Coca-Cola European Partners buys the syrup from The Coca-Cola Company, and combines it with other ingredients to make the products, bottle them and distribute across GB and Western Europe.
You will probably recognise our most popular brands such as Coca-Cola, Sprite, Fanta, Dr Pepper and Oasis but did you know we also make Powerade, Monster and Appletiser?
