The company said yesterday that the funds will be used to develop a new water treatment plant. CCEP has invested a total of GBP18m in the site, at East Kilbride near Glasgow, to date.

"The new plant will allow a more efficient water recovery system from the site's four manufacturing lines, saving an estimated 9m litres of water a year," CCEP said.

The investment is part of a GBP56m scheme across six manufacturing sites in the UK. East Kilbride employs 150 people and produces around 16m cases of product a year. 

"This latest investment demonstrates our continued commitment to the future of manufacturing in Scotland as well as local employment and skills development through our growing apprentice programme here on site," said John McCafferty, director of supply chain operations at CCEP East Kilbride.

CCEP, the result of a merger between Coca-Cola Enterprises, The Coca-Cola Co's German operations and Coca-Cola Iberian Partners, operates across 13 European countries.
