Focus - PepsiCo's school vending pledge
PepsiCo steals reputational march on Coke

PepsiCo is to adopt a new global policy to stop sales of its full-sugar soft drinks to primary and secondary schools by 2012.
Three major US beverage firms have claimed to have delivered on a three-year commitment with the Alliance for a Healthier Generation to remove full-calorie soft drinks from schools across the country.
Major soft drinks companies in the US have backed an initiative for clearer labelling in support of Michelle Obama’s anti-obesity drive launched yesterday (9 February).
