Blog: Is PepsiCo now leading the "green" field?

Michelle Russell | 16 March 2011

PepsiCo yesterday (15 March) unveiled a PET bottle made entirely of plant material, which it claims beats the technology of rival The Coca-Cola Co.

Two years ago, Coca-Cola introduced the PlantBottle, made using 30% plant-based materials, specifically sugar-cane waste. In comparison, PepsiCo's bottle will be 100% made from plant waste.

With global soft drinks firms all pointing to commodity headwinds causing potential problems in 2011, are we now going to see the likes of Danone and Nestle follow suit?
