CCE has announced details of more investment in France

Coca Cola Enterprises (CCE) is investing EUR30m (US$37.5m) in a new canning line at one of its production plants in France. 

The new line will be installed at its Grigny facility in Paris' southern suburbs next June, the company said today. The move, which will lead to 20 new jobs being created, is in response to market growth in France. 

"With this new investment, CCE reaffirms its commitment to production in France... 90% of our drinks consumed in France are made here," said the CCE Europe's president, Hubert Patricot.

He added: "Regular investment in our five (French) production plants sustains the development of CCE in France and also contributes to the economic growth of the regions where we are located." 

In the last five year, CCE has invested EUR217m in its French plants.  

Last month, the group, Coca-Cola's anchor bottler for Western Europe, reported a single-digit rise in nine-month profits and sales
