Helping to create a healthier relationship between people and food means continuing to transform our product offerings and increasing people's access to more nutritious options. PepsiCo's 2025 agenda starts with what we make.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), worldwide obesity has more than doubled since 1980. At the same time, hunger and malnutrition remain two of the world's most serious health problems. And with the world's population expected to surge to 9.7 billion by 2050, according to the United Nations, the private food industry will need to make nutritious food available in greater quantities and at affordable prices. Simultaneously, consumer demand for more nutritious foods and beverages continues to rise, presenting growth potential for PepsiCo.

As a responsible Snacking company, PepsiCo India has made significant progress in transforming its snacks portfolio. We have reduced 5% to 25% sodium across popular variants of our snacks flagship brands, Lay’s and Kurkure and we further aim at reducing sodium in 75% of our food’s portfolio by 2025

Snacks We have made significant progress by reducing 5% to 25% sodium across popular variants of our snacks master brands including Lay’s and Kurkure. And reduced 15% Saturated fat in the entire Lay’s potato chips range.

Beverages We have been offering consumers a wide range of beverages including ‘No-Sugar’ variants such as Diet Pepsi, Pepsi Black, and reduced sugar variants such as 7UP with 30% reduced sugar. We have also expanded alternative beverages and hydration choices for consumers including Aquafina, Gatorade, a sports nutrition drink.

Nutrition We offer a range of healthier choices under our nutrition portfolio brands Quaker and Tropicana

  • • Tropicana Essentials range of functional juices with ‘No-Added Sugar’, fortified with essentials nutrients like Iron and Vitamin A&C
  • • Tropicana 100% - range of 100% juices with ‘No-Added Sugar’, ‘No Added Preservatives’ and 9 fruit nutrients
  • • Quaker Oats range including Quaker Oats Plus with multigrain advantage and Quaker Whole Oats providing 100% Wholegrain nutrition

As you'll see in our 2025 Agenda, we intend to build on this progress over the next decade, with plans for the further transformation of our portfolio as well as a significant expansion of food and beverage offerings containing positive nutrition, with a focus on reaching more underserved communities and consumers with healthier choices.

Bringing about systemic and comprehensive improvements in the global diet will require the engagement of large food and beverage companies like PepsiCo. Our global scale, resources and capabilities will continue to be valuable assets as governments and NGOs manage health and nutrition priorities around the world.

Because no one 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, health and well-being.

More and more families are eating healthier, and in turn, we continue to grow what we call our Everyday Nutrition business-products with positive nutrition like whole grains, fruits and vegetables, dairy, protein and hydration- which now accounts for 25% of the company’s revenue.

 At the same time, PepsiCo and the PepsiCo foundation have worked with partners to help advance nutrition and food security in communities around India.
