To support its growth in France, Coca-Cola Enterprises will invest in a new, state-of-the-art production line for cans at its manufacturing site in Grigny, France. This investment of €30 million will create 20 new jobs at the site.

“With this new investment, Coca-Cola Enterprises reaffirms its commitment to produce in France since 90% of our drinks consumed in France are produced in France,” says Hubert Patricot, European President of Coca-Cola Enterprises. “Our ongoing investments across our five industrial sites support the development of Coca-Cola Enterprises in France and also participate in the economic growth of the regions where we operate.”

Coca-Cola has been present in France for more than 90 years and employs 2,600 employees in the country. Its drinks are popular – consumed by 8 out of 10 French households.

Coca-Cola Enterprises is committed to produce its drinks closer to its retail customers and is investing directly at the heart of the French economy.

Today, 90% of its drinks consumed in France are produced in France, in one of the company’s five plants: Dunkerque, Clamart, Grigny, Toulouse and Marseille.

Coca-Cola Enterprises has invested Eur217 million between 2009 to 2014 across its five manufacturing sites with a view to expand their production capacity and reduce their environmental footprint.
