Coca-Cola European Partners is the world’s largest independent Coca-Cola bottler and employs some 3,600 people in GB. The hospitality sector has been central to our business for more than 134 years, which is why we have an important role to play in protecting its future.
We’re committed to helping pubs come through these difficult times, staying in constant dialogue with them and championing their best interests with government, as well as working with our customers to ensure there’s product behind the bar and equipment that’s ready to serve it. You can see some of the ways we’re doing this here.
Our ‘must-stocks’ for pubs are Coca-Cola Original Taste, Coca-Cola Zero Sugar, Diet Coke, Schweppes Classic Tonic, Schweppes Slimline Tonic, Schweppes Lemonade and Appletiser. Our advice in the current climate is to focus on serving this range of proven winners, and on serving them well.
Throughout the coronavirus outbreak, we’ve continued to support our communities through charitable donations, supplying our products to those on the front line or who have fallen on hard times, and through our colleagues volunteering their time to good causes.
By sponsoring the Great British Pub Awards, we’re pleased to be involved in celebrating the extraordinary things many pubs have achieved in their communities this year.
Best of luck!
