Product Lifecycle Manager - Interim
Our vision is both simple and ambitious: to put our drinks on every table.
We are the world’s largest independent bottler for retailers and A-brands, and our products are distributed worldwide from our production sites in Europe and North America. So, although our own branding may not appear on the labels of the beverages we produce, there’s a good chance you are reading this while sipping one of our drinks.
Our ambition and our drive to continually improve is what keeps us at the top of our game. We’re solutions based. We’re innovative. We seek out new challenges and conquer them. This is our company ethos, but it’s our people’s too: Refresco is at the cutting edge of a fast moving industry because we have passionate people pushing the boundaries of what’s best.
So stop and think: how would you put our drinks on every table?
