Speaking to analysts today (23 July), Indra Nooyi said: “Where we think it makes sense, we’ll look at it on a case-by-case basis. Vietnam and Mexico are performing well.” PepsiCo sold 51% of its Vietnam beverage business to Suntory in 2012.

Nooyi added: “Stay tuned. As we find interesting opportunities, we’ll be back to talk to you.”

Earlier today (23 July), PepsiCo reported a 3.3% rise in first-half profits, while sales were flat. Beverage volumes in Q2 edged up by 1%.

The US CSD category has been under particular pressure as consumers turn to healthier options. But, Nooyi warned against getting obsessed with pressure on volumes.

“In categories that our slowing down in particular, a focus just on volume is an unhealthy trend,” she said. “We are very careful to make sure that we carefully balance volume with pricing growth and not try to go for volume at all costs.”
