Progress Towards a Healthier Future

Today’s news that the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation has exceeded its goal of reducing 1.5 trillion calories in the marketplace marks significant progress in the effort to curb obesity and encourage healthy lifestyles.

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. By using less water and energy, we’re producing potato chips in a way that’s good for China and good for PepsiCo, a model we follow in all 200 markets we operate in around the world. Read more

FIND Performance with Purpose

At Boxford the juices we mix with our delicious apple juice to create our fantastic blends, (like Apple & Mango or Apple & Raspberry), come in large metal drums. We have hundreds of these drums and they used to be crushed and sent away as scrap – but we wanted to ensure that these were properly recycled in line with a project to better manage our waste streams from the factory. We found a company who would give us £3 - £5 per drum, and decided to give some of this money to local charities operating around Boxford in Suffolk. Read more
