PepsiCo is committed to providing safe products and to protecting equity in our brands, trademarks and goodwill.
PepsiCo complies with all legally required nutrition labeling. Our policies cover food safety, sanitation, recalls and allergens, and require that our products are coded, labeled, identifiable and traceable. Nutrition labeling is part of our food safety compliance systems, which include website training, monitoring, preventive measures and readiness for corrective action. We have regular management reviews of our procedures and activities regarding our products.
On a global basis, we label all ingredient information on the back of the product package and provide any other relevant nutrition information in compliance with local country guidelines.
In addition, we're working to ensure that by 2012, basic nutritional information is available to consumers on packages (where feasible to print on the packaging and where permissible by local regulations) for all of our food and beverage products in key markets. In countries where we've already met this standard, we're also working toward an additional goal—displaying calorie or energy counts on the fronts of packages. We have already implemented front-of-pack labeling on many products in the U.K. and many other European countries, as well as in Australia. And we are rapidly expanding implementation in a number of countries around the globe, including the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Brazil.
