Momentum in Myanmar

A key component of PepsiCo’s growth strategy is to aggressively invest in emerging and developing markets where economic growth and rising consumer incomes are increasing demand for convenient food and beverages.  These markets have become a growing revenue source for the company. In 2012, emerging and developing markets accounted for 35 percent of PepsiCo’s net revenue, up from 24 percent in 2006.  One such market is Myanmar, where this week Chairman and CEO Indra Nooyi kicked off a trip to PepsiCo’s Asia-Pacific region with a visit to the capital of Myanmar to co-chair the World Economic Forum on East Asia 2013. Myanmar is “a story that is just beginning to unfold,” said Indra. “Political reform is happening here and as economic reform starts to happen here in Myanmar, I think this is going to be an unbelievable growth story for many years to come.” In Myanmar, PepsiCo signed...

Showcasing the Power of our Brands in the UK

2012 has been a remarkable year for Great Britain: the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, the London Olympics and Paralympics, a British champion of the Tour de France and most recently, Andy Murray winning his first tennis Grand Slam title at the US Open. I am also pleased to say, as I welcome our Chairman and CEO Indra Nooyi to our region, it has to date been a remarkable year for PepsiCo’s UK, Ireland and South Africa business as well. We began the year with a visit from Prime Minster David Cameron, as we announced a multi-million pound expansion of our Quaker Oats site in Scotland, followed by the opening of our new distribution centre in Peterlee, and then our investment in Walkers in Leicester, creating 110 jobs. At the same time, our brands have enjoyed great success. Take the Quaker Oat So Simple brand reaching a milestone... Read more

Three Lessons for Delighting Chinese Consumers

More than 30 years ago, PepsiCo was one of the first American companies to enter China. My first visit here as a PepsiCo executive came in the mid-1990s, shortly after PepsiCo Foods introduced Lay’s potato chips to the Chinese market. One image that I will never forget, shortly after the launch, is the sight of dozens of people on city streets eating those delicious chips—using chopsticks. Even then, it was impossible to eat just one. Read more

A Little Love from the Inside Out

While PepsiCo is known throughout the business world as having one of the most dynamic and effective sales organizations globally, a select few within this organization earn a special recognition by the company for their incredible achievements. One-quarter of one percent—that’s one in four-hundred— earns this recognition for their extraordinary passion for sales and dedication to their customers. Known as our President’s Ring of Honor award, we honor these colleagues not only for the immediate success that they bring the company (especially critical given the challenging environment into which they must sell), but also hoist their performance high as an example for other colleagues to emulate as PepsiCo continues to try to develop and deliver the best products possible to consumers everywhere.  We try to help people thrive in their careers; recognizing inspiring work is part of our commitment to make this a reality. To that end, 226 extraordinary performers... Read more
