In the second of a four-part event, we are in conversation with PepsiCo, one of the world’s leading food and beverage companies serving more than 200 countries and territories around the world. PepsiCo’s goal is to explore novel technologies to locate disruptive innovation that will impact their core products and/or new and emerging products. 

In this event, which is part of our Global Challenge campaign on sustainable plastics, polymers and alternatives, we spoke with the Director of R&D External Innovation and the Senior Manager of R&D External Innovation at PepsiCo to uncover their top research priorities within the sustainable plastics space and what they are searching for from new academic partners. 

To submit your research or opportunities at your institute to PepsiCo’s R&D team, as well as to other companies in our cross-sector network of industry teams looking for new plastic solutions, our Global Challenge submission form can be found on the landing page for academics and TTOs.
