PepsiCo to cut use of virgin plastic as part of broad sustainability goal

Read the full story at Supply Chain Dive.

PepsiCo said it will reduce the use of virgin plastic per serving by 50% across its global food and beverage portfolio by 2030, and incorporate half recycled content in its plastic packaging as part of a new initiative called Pep+.

The beverage and snack giant also said it would focus on scaling new business models that require little or no single-use packaging, noting efforts to expand its SodaStream sparkling-water business.

PepsiCo’s standard of measurement will be the amount of plastic used to serve 12 ounces of beverages and 1 ounce of food, Reuters reported, allowing the company to more easily measure its use of the packaging material.
