11/16 (Blogspot): Pepsico and the Environment. With its reorganization behind it, Purchase, NY-based Pepsico, starting in FY 08, may be able to do more with its largest single division, its Americas food operations. The division has reduced the environmental impact on local communities of its Frito-Lay factories, which is terrific for the workers and the community. Now it would be wonderful if Pepsico could could give us more food options. I teach from 6 to 9 pm many evenings at a university facility where the vending machines all belong to Pepsico. They do not cater to professors seeking to stay away from salt, processed sugar or anything fried. How hard would it be to include, say, raisin-and-nuts packages?
