Global context

At PepsiCo, we are committed to growing our core brands such as Pepsi and Lays while continuing to expand our more nutritious food and beverage offerings. What we make is central to PepsiCo's Performance with Purpose 2025 agenda.

With obesity on the rise and hunger and malnutrition consistently among the most-serious global issues, the need for more affordable and convenient nutritious food and beverages is as great as ever.

As part of our overarching products strategy, PepsiCo is taking aggressive steps to meet evolving consumer needs and preferences, while adapting to many of the WHO’s recommendations for combating non-communicable disease, such as:

  • Reducing added sugars, sodium and saturated fat in our food and beverages
  • Introducing more nutritious options
  • Providing clear labeling information about ingredients
  • Adhering to responsible marketing policies
  • Meeting the highest standards for food quality and safety

Our goal is to make it easier for consumers to make informed nutrition choices for themselves and their families.

Our Progress

Central to Performance with Purpose (PwP) is our lineup of more nutritious food and beverage options.

PepsiCo responded to changing consumer preferences and opportunities by offering more nutritious products. Over the years, we have made a number of moves to grow our core brands while expanding our range of more nutritious food and beverages.

  • Acquired Tropicana
  • Merged with The Quaker Oats Company, which also brought Gatorade to PepsiCo
  • Acquired Wimm-Bill-Dann – Russia’s dairy leader and a significant juice producer
  • Partnered with Strauss Group to distribute Sabra--the number one hummus brand and the leader in chilled dips and spreads

PepsiCo has also invested in trusted, global nutrition brands such as Naked Juice and Lipton ready-to-drink tea.

More and more families are eating more nutritious foods, and in turn, we continue to add product offerings with positive nutrition like whole grains, fruits and vegetables, dairy, protein and hydration.

We have also improved the nutritional profile of many of our products by reducing added sugars, saturated fat and sodium. We have also worked, through our business and the PepsiCo Foundation, to help advance nutrition and food security in communities around the world. These all continue to be key priorities for PepsiCo, and are important goals in our Performance with Purpose 2025 agenda.

2025 Agenda

As you'll see in our 2025 Agenda, our aim is to continue building on this progress over the next decade, with plans to further transform our portfolio as well as significantly expanding our food and beverage offerings containing positive nutrition, with a focus on reaching more underserved communities and consumers with more nutritious choices.

Our global scale, resources and capabilities will continue to be valuable assets as we work with governments and NGOs with the aim of addressing nutrition priorities around the world.

Because no company can solve public health challenges alone, we will continue to work with partners and experts to meet our Products goals, while contributing to global efforts around food security, improved nutrition and well-being.
