According to the legacy brand, the group behind the pepsicohealthandnutritionsciences.com​ has a strong academic foundation that leverages expertise in nutrition, dietetics, health promotion, and other health science related disciplines.

The H&NS team is part of the Life Sciences function, which brings together key stakeholders with expertise in health and nutrition science and associated policy, sports science, external innovation, clinical operations and external engagement with health professionals and academics.  The Life Sciences team explores the relationships between nutrition, diet, health and performance through research and provides a single voice for PepsiCo in the interpretation, communication and translation of science to support innovation.

Responsibility comes with territory 

Marianne O’Shea, Vice President, Global Health & Nutrition leads PepsiCo’s Health and Nutrition Sciences team. She said that while PepsiCo has been curating and sharing educational content for many years, there has not been a central location to house the information. 

“Therefore, the H&NS team decided to create a website to ensure that there is transparency to our research program by making these materials more easily accessible to the broader health and nutrition community. The hope is that these resources will continue to move the field forward,”​ explained O’Shea.

She added that PepsiCo’s global scale provides a major opportunity as well as responsibility to provide consumers with sustainable products that meet nutritional needs.
