LAY’S ‘Goes West’ with New PepsiCo Foods Plant in China

With today’s announcement of our new snacks plant in the city of Wuhan – PepsiCo’s sixth food plant in Greater China – we’re opening the doors to growth in central and western China, a move that allows us to fuel the continued growth of products like Lay’s and Stax while supporting regional development with the creation of about 1,000 local jobs. Wuhan is PepsiCo’s first foods plant in China built to LEED standards, joining our three LEED Pepsi bottling plants as some of the most water and energy efficient facilities in the entire PepsiCo network. Applying the latest technology, the plant is expected to reduce energy consumption by 20% and water consumption by 30% compared to baseline plants – savings that simultaneously lower our operating costs.
