Coca-Cola Enterprises has begun a consultation with employees at its newly acquired Abbey Well mineral water plant, warning of possible job losses.

A spokesperson for Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE) told just-drinks today (15 December) that the bottler has started a consultation with staff at the Abbey Well plant in Morpeth, Northumberland.

Coca-Cola Great Britain announced in November that it intended to buy Abbey Well owner Waters & Robson Holdings, for an undisclosed fee.

The CCE spokesperson said today: "No decisions will be taken until the consultation process is completed. The integration could mean job opportunities for some Abbey Well employees, however there may be job losses."

Under the deal, CCE will bottle and distribute Abbey Well, which will be sold under the Schweppes umbrella.

The takeover hands Coca-Cola GB a greater presence in high-end bottled water in the UK.
