Abstract:
Since the mid 1960s, PepsiCo, the world's number two soft drink maker, had gradually transformed itself from a carbonated soft drink maker to a diversified food and drink maker. PepsiCo's diversified portfolio, while helping it to tide over a slowdown in the global beverage industry in the late 1990s, also provided it with an unparalleled bargaining power to deal with supermarket giants like Wal-Mart. The company witnessed a 45% increase in its sales and a fourfold increase in its net profits between 1996 and 2004. By 2004, with net revenue of $29 billion, PepsiCo was the world's third largest food and beverage company.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To highlight the PepsiCo's diversification strategies
  • To discuss the challenges faced by PepsiCo's in diversifying its portfolio.
