Simon Harrison, vice-president commercial development at CCEP GB, said: “Sixty-four per cent of consumers think keeping up family and Christmas traditions is more important than ever this year – and with 100 years of heritage at Christmas time, Coca-Cola has an important role to play in making that happen.

“Last year our soft drinks range was the largest contributor to Christmas soft drinks growth, led by Coca-Cola, but also Schweppes and Appletiser. We see this continuing for 2020 as consumers look for affordable ways to treat themselves.
