PepsiCo set new targets for more healthy food and drinks Monday and announced pledges to reduce product packaging and limit water use.

With US soda giants under pressure to produce more healthy beverages, Pepsi pledged that by 2025, at least two-thirds of the 12 ounce beverages it sells will contain 100 or fewer calories. At least three-quarters of foods sold will not exceed 1.1 grams of saturated fat per 100 calories.

Pepsi’s “2025 Sustainability Agenda” also included policies to limit water consumption, incorporate more recyclable packaging and purchase crops from sustainable farms.

Besides soda, Pepsi’s brands include Gatorade sports drinks, the Frito-Lay snack brand and Tropicana orange juice.

A study released last week by academics at the Boston University School of Public Health faulted Pepsi and rival Coca-Cola for fighting added taxes on high-sugar sodas at the same time they provide funding to health organizations. The study questioned whether the soda giants’ funding for those groups was driven by marketing rather than public interest.

PepsiCo chief executive Indra Nooyi said the company’s 2025 Sustainability Agenda aims to be consistent with United Nations sustainable development goals and the 2015 Paris climate agreement.

“To succeed in today’s volatile and changing world, corporations must do three things exceedingly well: focus on delivering strong financial performance, do it in a way that is sustainable over time and be responsive to the needs of society,” Nooyi said.

  • Who are they kiddin? If they see a lion soaked from the rain, its run like hell. ‘Dont mistake it for a cat?’ Only if the whole regiment was drunk on jenkem and that is possible but nobody can mistake a lion for a kitty cat. There is a slight difference of several hundred pounds in addition to several feet of tail and overall a eight foot in length cat is a fuck of alot bigger than a one foot long pussy cat. Jeeesh, Sounds to me these so callled soldiers have been doing something other than marching with a heavy pack for ten miles before breakfast.

  • I think islam should take over Africa, Do you think any of those muslims would stop for even one second and worry about feeding the always hungry, always a famine , people they conquer? In this fashion, we can see the complete extinction of the entire negroid race in a single generation, After all, the UN cant bring in slop for the niglets and cock suckers who live in the land, so they will starve, then resort to cannabalism, which was never a big leap anyways, They do it now for sport, Who will care when they do it laboriously 24/7? Not I, thats fer sure, Goodbye negro, Goodby mammy, Goodbye negro, Its so sad to see you go. Goodbye negroid, Hope you are hungry, Cause you aint gettin nottin, the white man is here no more. Feed yourself negger, Feed yourself negger, Feed yerself neegger cause you are going to die.

      it is obvious that the writer above does not understand one bit of a peoples idiomatic expressions. little less does he know that all others have a right to exist whether hungry and begging or destitute and forgotten. all i see is an angry person who believes that he is being denied his right to exist. guess what? even if you don’t believe in God as the creator of all, how sad for you that the universe, and the powers that wrought all human beings in their different coloration put us all here to breathe the same air and bleed the same color of blood. if all you do is whine and complain and name call others, may be it is you that needs to go! Africa, is the mother land and it shouldn’t be poor were it not for the raping and striping of its rich resources by the settlers. but that is history that you might not know or understand. but where ever you are you might want to thank those settlers for they amassed wealth and riches that you might be enjoying right now. black people or Negroids as you prefer to refer to them are here to stay! so get used to it. unfortunately, wishes aren’t horses, it just seems a waste of your time and energy wishing for them to be annihilated, and for all that it is worth you should be a rich person considering how much venom you harbor and obviously how your thoughts are populated by these satanic thoughts. i am sure you are in good company of others that share your views and thoughts but yours is just a lost course. good luck wishing!
