At the Center of it All: PepsiCo Mexico Beverages

With 7UP, Mirinda, Pepsi, Manzanita Sol, Lipton and H2Oh!, we have an incredible family of loved beverages that are at the heart of music and sports throughout Mexico. Pepsi, introduced here more than 100 years ago, has a long history of bonding with consumers through music, and that tradition will continue for years to come through the Pepsi Center in Mexico City. With the main concert and event producer in Latin America and a real estate partner, we created a state-of-the-art venue for concerts, expositions and sporting events. Since opening in March, it’s hosted some of the biggest names in music—bringing people together for the same kind of joy and fun they love about Pepsi. Gatorade, the world leader in sports hydration, is also the top choice for Mexican athletes. It fuels Olympic fútbol player Oribe Peralta and Olympic diver Paola Espinosa. In fact, business magazine Gestion... Read more

The Promise of PepsiCo Mexico

A 25-year veteran of PepsiCo, I believe that there has never been a more exciting time for PepsiCo Mexico. With some of the most cherished, iconic food and beverage brands in the country—Sabritas, Gamesa, Pepsi, Quaker, Sonric’s—we delight consumers every day, deliver great value for our customers and create delicious products that people enjoy around the world. That was clear as we toured a number of Mexico City restaurants and retail stores today with our Chairman and CEO, Indra Nooyi. We saw it firsthand during a visit to Burger King. When you go to BK in Mexico, you get customized Whopper-flavored Ruffles with your burger—served with your favorite beverage like Pepsi, Mirinda or 7UP. And the BK Storm ice cream, topped with our Milch chocolate and Emperador cookies, is a sweet way to finish a meal.With all of our beloved brands, this is the kind of... Read more

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

Reflections from World Water Week 2012

Last week, PepsiCo received the Stockholm Industry Water Award and announced that it reached its goal of improving global water use efficiency by more than 20 percent per unit of production – four years ahead of the original 2015 target date based on a 2006 baseline. We are proud of these accomplishments but we know there is more work to do. At PepsiCo, we believe that social, economic and environmental sustainability is critical for the continued health and success of communities and for the long-term, profitable growth of our business. As a leading global food and beverage company – water stewardship and sustainable agriculture are truly part of our business. World Water Week’s theme – water and food security – highlighted the importance of maintaining our dedication to responsible water stewardship and agricultural productivity, particularly as we heard dire statistics on water scarcity and the lack of...

PepsiCo and Columbia Water Center: working together to increase efficiency in our supply chains

The theme of this year’s World Water Week in Stockholm is Water and Food Security, so discussions of PepsiCo’s work to conserve resources in agriculture are front and center. On Monday, PepsiCo and the Columbia Water Center (CWC) at the Earth Institute, Columbia University convened a panel titled Water and Energy Efficiencies in Food Supply Chains: Leveraging Partnerships.  We started the discussion by describing PepsiCo’s ReCon program, which focuses on identifying, quantifying, and prioritizing opportunities to conserve resources in our operating plants. We then devoted most of the session to the conservation challenges and opportunities in our agriculture supply chain. Ian Hope-Johnstone, director of agricultural sustainability, described the actions PepsiCo and our partners have taken to improve India’s potato productivity while using less water; our collaboration with the Inter-American Development Bank in supporting Mexican sunflower farmers; and i-crop, a system that allows integrated management of water, nutrient, and crop...

Perspectives from Asia Pacific

One of PepsiCo’s great strengths has always been brand-building, and many of our mega-brands not only offer up great products, they are household names. At PepsiCo, we make sure our brands meet the needs and the aspirations of all of our consumers, wherever they are in the world. Take Korea. Yesterday, in Seoul, PepsiCo’s determined and dynamic Korea team had the chance to showcase to Indra Nooyi all the many ways in which they have taken the essence of some of PepsiCo’s mega-brands and ‘glocalized’ them for the Korean consumer.

PepsiCo Knows Sports … and Now the Steelers

When I think of the Pittsburgh Steelers, a lot comes to mind: The Immaculate Reception, Terrible Towels, the Steel Curtain, a record six Super Bowl victories, the legendary stewardship of the Rooney family and some of the most passionate and dedicated fans in all of sports. That’s why I’m so excited to announce today that PepsiCo has signed a new, exclusive, multi-year partnership with the Steelers that spans our food and beverage portfolio. Read more
