We Are CCEP: France

At Coca-Cola European Partners (CCEP), every day we serve more than 1 million customers and our 6,000 strong sales force work to support their individual needs. We sell some of the world’s best loved brands to outlets such as supermarkets, restaurants and convenience stores in 13 countries across Western Europe.

As part of our We Are CCEP series, we travelled to Val Thorens in the French Alps, which is the highest ski resort in Europe at 2,300m, to meet members of our field sales team. Benoit, Christophe and Clement work with customers from April to November, preparing for the important ski season which starts in December.

During the off season they introduce new innovations, take product orders and deliver displays and coolers to customers in the Alps. As soon as the season begins, the environment they work in is very unique as they visit their customers in snowy resorts and those based further up the mountain on lifts, snowmobiles, skis and snowboards. 

The snow and unpredictable weather is an added logistical and organisational challenge, but skiing and snowboarding makes everything much easier and helps them to be much more agile, efficient and visit more of our customers each day.

We spent a day trying to keep up with the team on the slopes to learn more about their unusual role for our We Are CCEP film series – click here to view the eighth video in the series.
