Coca-Cola says its acquisition of Abbey Well will result in major growth opportunities for the brand.

The purchase of Abbey Well owner Waters & Robson will increase the availability of the brand, adding that its investment and national expertise will enable it to build on the water company's strong reputation.

"Coca-Cola Enterprises will be considering how best to integrate the Abbey Well business," said a spokeswoman, admitting that the integration may include job losses.

Coca-Cola was not yet ready to disclose the acquisition price, she added.
