Summary

In an interview with The Atlantic, PepsiCo Mexico President Pedro Padierna weighs in on why he thinks sustainability is an emerging trend that will shake up the food world.

Thursday, February 23, 2012 - 1:00pm

The president of PepsiCo Mexico, Pedro Padierna is a key figure in the expansion plans for what's already the second largest food and beverage company in the country, with 55,000 associates. You'll be hearing more about him in the coming months and years as Mexico is considered a core growth market for PepsiCo (the umbrella company behind Quaker, Tropicana, Gatorade, Frito-Lay, Pepsi Cola, and other businesses), which already employs nearly 300,000 people worldwide and enjoys net revenues of approximately $60 billion.

Padierna's decisions as leader of PepsiCo Mexico's food businesses (Sabritas, Gamesa-Quaker, Sonric's) will have a significant impact on the country's agricultural market -- and everything (and everyone) that touches it. Consider this: PepsiCo buys more than one out of every five potatoes grown in Mexico and is already the biggest buyer of wheat inside the country.
