Performance with a purpose

Overview

This is a half-day tour and is combined with another half-day tour at Philps Respironics. 

PepsiCo's food and beverage products are sold around the world. Its six global divisions, either independently or in conjunction with third parties, make, market, distribute and sell a wide variety of food and beverages in its diverse product portfolio, drive innovation and are focused on delivering Performance with Purpose - the goal to position PepsiCo for long-term, sustainable growth by aligning what is good for its business with what is good for society and the planet.

In 2001, Gatorade® Sports Performance Products, one of the world's leading sports drinks, was acquired by PepsiCo. Created by researchers at the University of Florida for the school's football team, "the Gators," the drink is backed by nearly 50 years of science.

In 1996, the Atlanta Gatorade facility broke ground for its production facility. Within a year, the first line was up and running. As a result of huge demand for Gatorade, G2, Tropicana, and Propel, the plant continued its growth to provide a range of bottle sizes / package configurations.

Some of the features of the plant are:

  • TPM
  • Scorecarding
  • Changeover processes

At the heart of PepsiCo is Performance with Purpose – its fundamental belief that the success of the company is inextricably linked to the sustainability of the world around us. PepsiCo believe that continuously improving the products it sells, operating responsibly to protect the planet and empowering people around the world is what enables it to run a successful global company that creates long-term value for society and its shareholders.
