Pepsico’s pledge on healthy snacks

02 April, 2010

Pepsico has published its first Health Report, which announces a 10-year pledge to focus future profit and growth on healthier products.

The food and drink company, with product ranges including Walkers, Tropicana, Quaker and Copella, said it is committed to “renovating” its core business and will research and develop products with “positive nutrition”, including fruit, fibre, wholegrain and vegetables.

Key pledges include ensuring that 50% of savoury snacks will be baked or include positive nutrition by 2015, and that 65% of carbonated soft drink sales will be “no sugar” by 2015.

President Richard Evans said: “In recent years Pepsico has responded to public health concerns by tackling the core of its business, reducing salt and saturated fat on crisps and snacks, and building strong no-sugar cola brands.

“We’ve achieved a great deal, but we’re committed to going further.”??
