CCE Technical Issues
As you are aware, we have encountered technical issues associated with the transition to a new enterprise resource planning system for our supply chain and logistics operations. We have fixed these technical issues and are working hard to restore our usual high levels of service. However, I am aware that there continues to be some disruption in your orders and would like to apologise for any ongoing issues you may be experiencing. Our colleagues in customer logistics are liaising with your teams to provide regular updates on the status of the orders you have placed and are doing all they can to minimise the disruption. I would like to apologise again for any inconvenience that you have experienced and would like to thank you for your support as we complete this system transition in the coming days
If you have live issues, please contact your local person identified on the CCE Contacts 2016 document.

SCHWEPPES PRODUCT RECALL (SEP 2015)
We take great pride in our long-standing reputation for quality and safety of our products, and continually work to ensure we maintain the highest possible manufacturing and quality standards.
We have discovered fermentation in a small number of 200 ml glass bottles of Schweppes Orange Juice produced on 28th /29th July 2015. We have identified the root cause and have rectified the issue. We do not believe this is a Food Safety issue and no other Schweppes products are affected.
Because the quality of our products is of the utmost importance to us, we are asking you to withdraw from sale any 200 ml bottles of Schweppes Orange Juice with production codes 209EK2XX:XX or 210EK2XX:XX that you may have in stock. We will, of course, arrange a replacement for the products that you withdraw from sale.
We will provide further information shortly in relation to the return or disposal of the products.
We apologise for any inconvenience this causes.
