As part of PepsiCo’s mission to deliver Performance with Purpose, nearly 93% of the total waste generated by PepsiCo-owned manufacturing facilities in 2013 was put to beneficial use. In Brazil, the São Mateus facility that produces Kero Coco coconut water is recycling rinse water and turning coconut husks, a by-product of the coconut-water manufacturing process, into mulch and fertilizer.
