The US-based group, which is Coca-Cola's anchor bottler in Western Europe, said net profits in the 12 months to the end of December came in at US$663m. Sales were also flat at $8.3bn, while operating profits on a reported basis climbed 11.5% to $1bn.  

Q4 net sales fell 5.5% on a reported basis, but volumes grew 2%, which CCE partly attributed to “introductory volume” for Coca-Cola Life. Group full-year volumes were flat.

“Throughout 2014, persistent macroeconomic and marketplace headwinds continued to affect our business and our top-line growth,” said chairman & CEO John Brock.

Looking ahead, Brock added: “As we go forward into 2015, we will continue to adapt to these operating conditions, with a solid emphasis on innovation in every aspect of our business. We will remain flexible in our approach and continue to manage each element of our business to deliver on our most important objective, creating value for our shareowners.
