Leading beverage brand, PepsiCo has admitted that it has failed to meet some of the short term targets specified in its Health Report first unveiled back in March 2010 in which the company had pledged to drive up its profits through healthier products.
PepsiCo UK and Ireland president, Richard Evans admitted that his company has struggled to meet some of the targets set in the report but claimed that it has managed to meet many of the pledged in advance of the target date.
The company said that it has reduced the salt content in its Walker range by a further 11 percent, which means that it has managed to cut down the salt content in the crisps by more than half in the last six years. Diet Pepsi and Pepsi Max sales are also double than those of regular Pepsi, a pledge that the company had promised to fulfill by 2015.
"Some of the targets we set ourselves last year fall within the timeframe of this update, others are longer term and will take years to deliver. We have not met all of our short term targets and in the spirit of openness have chosen to be transparent about the setbacks, the challenges we have faced and how we propose to address them", Evans said.
