The French subsidiary of Coca-Cola European Partners, the European bottler of Coca-Cola, has announced a reorganisation to reduce production for the French market, which will lead to 128 job cuts within the next 12 months in its headquarter and in its five production sites.  Job cuts will occur in  5 bottling plants located in Toulouse (Midi-Pyrénnée), Marseille (Bouche-du-Rhône), Grigny  (Essonne), Clamart i(Hauts-de-Seine) and Socx (Nord). These 5 sites produce 90% of the drinks consumed in France. According to the management, the information and consultation process has started on 18 October and the company will propose a plan with internal redeployment, voluntary departures and early retirement.  Coca-Cola European Partners (CCEP) has seen its sales 'falling structurally since 2013', according to the management.
