NATIONWIDE SUPPLY ISSUES – COCA COLA ENTERPRISES 2022
You will appreciate that back in June, we informed you of a serious supply issue that Coca Cola had with the availability of glass largely due to the war in Ukraine as well as global challenges in all supply chains. We have now received their latest update that we share with you as attached.
Unfortunately, the situation with the supply of the 330ml Glass Coca Cola range has not improved and despite best endeavours the entire UK network of Distributors find themselves with limited allocations and at time zero availability. I can assure you that myself and my entire team have worked hard to secure supply but due to all these pressures it simply hasn’t been forthcoming and the problem remains unresolved.
The following update indicates that the problem is ongoing and whilst it is far from satisfactory for both ourselves, and your business, we do at least have alternatives for Coca Cola, Diet Coke and Coke Zero. I realise that these are not necessarily ideal, but it does at least mean that the brands can be served.
Coca Cola | Diet Coke | Coke Zero – all available in 330ml Cans (24 per case)
Coca Cola | Diet Coke | Coke Zero – all available in 200ml Glass (24 per case)
I trust you appreciate that all of this is totally outside of our control and whilst we face these issues, we are trying everything possible to secure supply and return to normal service. We shall continue to keep you all updated as the situation changes.
Thank you once again for your ongoing understanding.
