Ball Packaging Europe, Krones and Klimasan have been recognised for their performance in quality, service, value and corporate responsibility and sustainability by Coca-Cola Enterprises and have been named as the soft drink group’s suppliers of the year 2012. Ball Packaging Europe won the Supplier of the Year Award, Krones was named Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability Supplier of the Year, and Klimasan received the Most Improved Supplier Award.

The CCE Supplier Award winners are identified through CCE’s Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) programme, which uses a rigorous scorecard process to measure performance, and the awards are based on the top-performing suppliers. Each CCE supplier is measured against criteria in four key areas (quality, service, value and corporate responsibility and sustainability).

Performance is then reviewed by the CCE Procurement team to ensure that the value being delivered to CCE is closely aligned with the business’s broader corporate priorities, and to develop ongoing relationships. The SRM programme provides a formalised framework through which CCE develops joint action plans, and reviews activities and performance.

CCE is the sole licensed operator for products of The Coca-Cola Company in Belgium, continental France, Great Britain, Luxembourg, Monaco, the Netherlands, Norway and Sweden.

Ball Packaging Europe was credited for its strong track record of consistently understanding and delivering against the needs of CCE. Ball Packaging Europe delivered a high-volume supply performance including complex designs and packaging expectations. An Industry leader in lightweighting advances of cans and can ends, Ball Packaging Europe is currently working in partnership with CCE to develop, trial and implement the lightest possible 33cl can in the world.

Krones was recognised as being a key contributor to reducing CCE’s carbon footprint through leading initiatives including air recovery systems for blow moulding machines; consumption data programs that detail usage of power, steam or heating water, fresh water, wastewater, emissions and product losses; and continued support of CCE lightweighting initiatives. Krones has developed its own CRS program that focuses on ecology, economy and ergonomics enabling the company to continually optimise its machine technology and promote resource economy.

Klimasan was praised for its customer-focused service delivering orders on-time and in-full and its commitment to improve the total life time costs of its products. The company has supported CCE’s non-HFC refrigerant policy by developing HC coolers for all models and partnered with CCE to incorporate a new range of highly efficient motors that will reduce the energy needs of the coolers and extend their useful lifetime.
