Getting the right nutrition within the right number of calories is a tricky balance every day.  That’s why PepsiCo is making it easier for people to understand and manage the calories they consume by committing to displaying calorie information on all products around the world by 2012, and increasing the range of foods and beverages that offer solutions for managing daily calorie intake.

To help meet this goal, our designers are working to repackage products into single-serve offerings that better enable calorie control.  For example, Frito-Lay has expanded its product portfolio offerings through portion-controlled snack packs, including 100-calorie packs and single serve packs.  Quaker has introduced 90-calorie packs of such favorites as Quaker Chewy Granola Bars and Quaker Granola Bites.

We are also clearly labeling the calorie content and nutrition profile of our products to help consumers manage their daily energy needs. In the U.S. for example, we will display total calorie counts on the front of all beverage containers up to and including 20-ounce packages, and will label multi-serve packaging using a 12-ounce serving (as well as number of servings per package) for all beverages. We will also display total calorie counts on company-controlled vending machines and company-controlled fountain equipment in the U.S. by 2012.

It is hard to keep track of calories, especially when there is not a label.  That’s why, at PepsiCo, we’re committed to providing you the information you need to help manage your calories everyday.
