PepsiCo subsidiaries Frito-Lay and Quaker announced the opening of a compostable packaging-focused learning center last week at their research and development headquarters in Plano, Texas.

The Greenhouse Learning Center will be used for testing and demonstrating the biodegradation properties of compostable packaging in different environments and to rapidly increase the speed of innovation, said Denise Lefebvre, senior vice president of R&D for PepsiCo, in an email.

The work aims to move the brands closer to PepsiCo’s sustainability goal to design 100% of its packaging to be recyclable, reusable, compostable or biodegradable by 2025.
