Frito-Lay Adds 700 Electric Delivery Vehicles
Frito-Lay announced it will use over 700 electric delivery vehicles in the U.S. by the end of the year to lower GHG emissions by 7,052 metric tons annually.
FritoLay is a foods division of PepsiCo, which is working toward its sustainability goals by using regenerative agriculture, water-saving technology and packaging innovation.
“Our mission is to create more smiles and a brighter future with every bite,” said Steven Williams, PepsiCo Foods North America CEO, in a statement. “As a collective of America’s most beloved brands, we have the unique opportunity to create a real impact by boldly innovating the way food is grown, made and shared.”
Using zero-and near-zero emission vehicles is a key step in achieving the pep+ net-zero emissions goal by 2040.
Frito-Lay is also making progress on renewable energy and water saving with improved emissions from zero- and near-zero emission technologies at the Frito-Lay manufacturing site in Modesto, Calif., adding a new electric fleet to serve the Dallas-Fort Worth area and using third-party transportation shipping with Schneider National Inc., marking Frito-Lay as the first to contract transport on Schneider’s growing fleet of Freightliner eCascadia battery-electric trucks in southern California.
The company also achieved 100% renewable electricity in all of its U.S. plants, offices and distribution centers.
