Today (12 April) multinational food, snack and beverage company Pepsico announced the news of pep+ (Pepsico positive) Partners for Tomorrow, a new platform to help its customers get closer to their sustainability targets.
Pepsico’s Partners for Tomorrow programme will house Pepsico’s comprehensive customer sustainability offerings on a single platform allowing for easy collaboration with the company’s partners. Pepsico says the initial launch will focus on US customers with existing plans to expand the programme to key global markets by 2024.
The company states that it will work closely with its partners to implement the initiatives and that the programmes are in line with pep+, and are designed to drive long-term sustainable business performance.
Senior vice-president and chief sustainability officer for PepsiCo Beverages North America, Todd Squarek, said: “PepsiCo has a long history of working together with our partners to advance shared sustainability goals. The Partners for Tomorrow platform aims to scale those solutions to foster the most effective partnerships and long-standing impact.

“With this platform, we are leveraging the shared scale of PepsiCo’s and our customers’ businesses to maximise impact, drive progress toward our pep+ goals, and benefit both our businesses, the planet and the communities we serve.”
The platform has a number of programmes involved as it readies for launch. These include Pepsico Beverage North America-led program Cirqu, Reusable Cup Solutions and Regenerative Agriculture.
Pepsico says that Partners for Tomorrow is one of the many ways that it is working to help reach its pep+ sustainability targets as well as see its customers get closer to their goals.
“At PepsiCo and Frito-Lay, our retail customers are true partners, including when it comes to addressing the impacts of climate change,” said chief customer officer at Frito-Lay North America Cara Keating.
“Through the launch of the Partners for Tomorrow platform and its robust portfolio of solutions, we are taking an important step forward in how we collaborate with our customers to progress toward critical sustainability goals, meet consumer demands, and, ultimately, drive commercial value together.”
This month Packaging Gateway reported on how Pepsico announced the news that Frito-Lay had opened a new Greenhouse Learning Center at its research and development headquarters in Texas, US, to boost the rate of sustainable packaging innovation. The company says that the learning centre will be used to field test, measure and analyse compostable packaging with the aim of speeding up the rate of innovation.
