Producing Nutritional Products Locally
PepsiCo joined the Business Call to Action in 2008 with its commitment to develop a nutritional product for markets in Nigeria, India and South Africa. The nutritional product is targeted for children and is currently being piloted in South Africa. Pepsi produces these products locally and relies on its extensive distribution networks in target countries, providing new jobs and opportunities in poor communities.
To date, over 100,000 children in South Africa have benefited from improved nutrition because of these products.
