Today, the global food system brings nutrition, economic opportunity, convenience and enjoyment to more people than ever before, but it faces significant pressures that threaten its future ability to meet the needs of a growing global population.
At PepsiCo, we believe that there is an opportunity to change how the world produces, distributes, consumes and disposes of foods and beverages in order to tackle the shared challenges we face.
We aim to use our scale, reach and expertise to help build a more sustainable food system; one that can meet human needs for nutrition and enjoyment, and continue to drive economic and social development, without exceeding the natural boundaries of the planet.
As well as being the right thing to do, working to realize this purpose is also good for our business. Where our food system may be operating in an unsustainable way, it can create supply chain, operational and financial risks for our company. By contrast, addressing risks within our value chain and the wider food system effectively can create new opportunities for competitive advantage and future market growth, while also supporting the communities in which we operate.
