PepsiCo's UK Supply Chain Director, Jane Burkitt, presented at the London Supply Chain Summit this week, hosted by food and grocery authority IGD.

The Summit brought together experts from leading organisations such as Kraft, Tesco, Nestle and Asda to best practice and discuss overcoming the challenging cost conditions facing the industry today.

Jane began her discussion by highlighting PepsiCo's Performance with Purpose promise and then went on to explain how the UK business is working to minimise its impact on the environment right throughout the supply chain.

"At PepsiCo, it's not just what you do, but about doing it in the right way; a way that is right for consumers, employees, the environment and the business as a whole", said Jane.
