IoPP announces PepsiCo as its first Platinum Benefactor
Packaging education, professional growth at the forefront
IoPP is pleased to announce PepsiCo as the Institute’s first Platinum Benefactor.
PepsiCo’s Platinum Benefactor contribution signifies their commitment to IoPP by helping to strengthen the Institute’s core mission of educating packaging professionals. And, through their support of IoPP, PepsiCo’s packaging teams will have unprecedented access to IoPP’s educational programs, including IoPP’s online packaging courses such as Fundamentals of Packaging Technology.
"With net revenues of more than $65 billion and a product portfolio that includes 22 brands that generate more than $1 billion each in annual retail sales, packaging continues to be integral to PepsiCo’s success as a global food and beverage leader,” said Toby Wingfield, R&D Packaging director, PepsiCo. “That's why our commitment as the Institute’s first Platinum Benefactor is an honor, particularly in the way of expanding online packaging education. For PepsiCo, this means ongoing opportunities for our colleagues worldwide."
And, as part of PepsiCo’s overall educational mission, IoPP will award a $5,000 “PepsiCo R&D Scholarship” to a top packaging student applicant each year.
“With PepsiCo coming on board as a Platinum Benefactor, IoPP’s industry reach widens, with education at the forefront,” said Patrick Farrey, IoPP Executive Director. “We view this as a commitment to the packaging industry as a whole, with both organizations focused on continuous and innovative program development providing more opportunities focused on success and innovation for students and packaging professionals across all industries.”
