Coca-Cola acquisition deal prompts supply chain changesThe Coca-Cola Company's acquisition of the North American operations of Coca-Cola Enterprises will bring about some changes in the corporation's supply chain.

To best create a seamless transition, Coca-Cola North America's supply chain operations will be redefined within the corporate structure of the Coca-Cola Company. The transaction, completed earlier this week, renamed the sales and operational elements of the North American businesses Coca-Cola Refreshments USA and Coca-Cola Refreshments Canada, respectively. The new companies, which are subsidiaries of the Coca-Cola Company and led by CCR president and CEO Steve Cahillane, will integrate five formerly separate business aspects, including CCNA's supply chain division and the Minute Maid and Odwalla juice businesses, into a bottling and customer service operation in both the U.S. and Canada.

"With the completion of this transaction, we have redefined our operating model to best serve the unique needs of our flagship market, in full alignment with our 2020 Vision," said Muhtar Kent, Coca-Cola Company chairman and CEO.

Coca-Cola also announced that its Board of Directors has elected Jan Bennink as director.
