IoPP Platinum Benefactor
PepsiCo is a global food and beverage leader 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.
Of course, most people know us for our iconic beverages and snacks, such as Pepsi-Cola, Mountain Dew, 7UP (outside the U.S.) and Sierra Mist, as well as Lay’s, Doritos, Cheetos, Tostitos, Ruffles and Fritos. But what many people don’t know is that PepsiCo’s strong and diversified portfolio also includes nutrition brands such as Quaker, Tropicana, Gatorade and Naked Juice; leading ready-to-drink Lipton iced teas (through our joint venture with Unilever) and Starbucks ready-to-drink-coffee beverages (through our joint venture with Starbucks); innovative snacks such as Stacy’s chips and Sabra hummus (through our joint venture with Strauss Group); and Muller Quaker Dairy (through our joint venture with Theo Muller Group), our new dairy platform in the U.S.
Performance with a Purpose
Performance with Purpose is our goal to deliver sustained value by providing a wide range of foods and beverages, from treats to healthy eats; finding innovative ways to minimize our impact on the environment and lower our costs through energy and water conservation as well as reduce use of packaging material; providing a safe and inclusive workplace for our employees globally; and respecting, supporting and investing in the local communities in which we operate.
Packaging, Recycling and Waste
GOAL: Innovate our packaging to make it increasingly sustainable, minimizing our impact on the environment. Over the last five years, we have reduced the packaging weight of our products by more than 350 million pounds in all manufacturing for which we procure packaging, including acquisitions—exceeding our goal by more than 20%. The packaging weight reductions we have achieved are equivalent to removing more than 95 tons of packaging material each day during that five-year period.
GOAL: Create a safe, healthy, diverse and inclusive workplace that reflects the global communities in which we operate. PepsiCo strives to be a home for the world’s best and brightest talent. In the last six years, we have built a “talent management architecture” designed to ensure our associates have the leadership skills and functional capabilities needed to deliver sustainable performance and growth.
