Coca-Cola To Outsource Part Of Its Drogheda Operation

Coca-Cola has said it is looking to outsource part of its Irish operations in Drogheda, according to RTÉ.

The group, seeking to evolve its total beverage company, will look at using third-party providers to provide managed services in order to increase speed and agility.

Early reports are unclear how many jobs will be affected at the plant that employs 200 people.

RTÉ understands that staff were called into a meeting and informed of the decision.

Restructuring

This follows a shut down of its manufacturing plant in Athy, Co. Kildare last year.

The closure resulted in a loss of 82 jobs, as it shifted its operations to Ballina, Co. Mayo

In September it announced an investment of up to €26 million in the Ballina site.
