First year Games Programming and Software Development students recently visited the Coca Cola Enterprises factory in Wakefield, learning everything they need to know for their upcoming organizational systems security assignment, which involves tasks based on security, health and safety, organisational policies and how organizations are managed.

The Wakefield Coca Cola Enterprises factory is the largest soft drinks plant by volume in Europe, covering an area the size of an incredible 33 football pitches! The factory is capable of producing 6,000 cans of soft drink and 3,200 bottles every single minute! Since 2007, the factory has been one of the fastest producers of soft drinks in the world.

Whilst at the factory, the students experienced a talk from the Head of Security about how security and staff are managed at the site. They visited the Security Office, seeing security management for themselves. They were shown the procedures for booking visitors in and out of the site and witnessed rigorous vehicle checking. To end the day, students attended a short presentation about the company and factory and then were taken on a guided tour of the factory to see how the products were made, bottled and packaged.
