April 17, 2018 | By RetailME Bureau

Expo 2020 Dubai and PepsiCo have joined forces with a shared vision to work together towards a healthier and more sustainable future in the lead-up to, during and beyond the next World Expo in 2020.

At the signing ceremony at the Expo 2020 site in Dubai South, UAE Minister of State for International Cooperation and Expo 2020 Dubai’s director general, Reem Al Hashimy, announced that PepsiCo is Expo 2020’s official beverage and snack partner. The two organisations will work together to inspire and educate millions on areas of critical importance including water stewardship, sustainable packaging, agriculture and nutrition.

“The increasing world population is straining the planet’s resources, generating an urgent need for more intelligent sources of nutrition, and packaging for snacks and beverages among other solutions. Expo 2020 Dubai is committed to showcasing products and innovations that will help address this global challenge, allowing people to live healthier, more prosperous and sustainable lives,” says Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, chairman of the Expo 2020 Dubai higher committee. “Through our partnership with PepsiCo, a company operating at the cutting edge of the F&B sector, we will be able to show millions of people what sustainable F&B will look like in the future, inspire more ideas, while educating visitors on our shared values towards a better world.”

“We are honoured to be selected by Expo 2020 as the official beverage and snack partner for this incredible gathering of the global ‘best of the best’ in Dubai. PepsiCo and Expo 2020 Dubai share the belief that we must create a virtuous cycle that can sustain our way of life for the next generation and beyond,” adds Indra K Nooyi, chairman and CEO of PepsiCo. “Together, we will make this event one of discovery – from new foods and beverages, to new solutions to the sustainability challenges that face us today and in the years ahead.”

PepsiCo plans to feature innovative, unique products at Expo 2020 Dubai, in line with the Expo themes of Sustainability, Opportunity and Mobility. The company will use the World Expo to showcase its latest nutrition-driven initiatives, expanding on programmes like ‘helloGoodness’, which shows how convenience, affordability and nutrition will come together in a new way in the future.

PepsiCo will also leverage the collective power of its brands to ensure that Expo 2020 Dubai will reach millions of households globally through cross branding, promotional contests and social media initiatives. Before and during the six-month event, Expo 2020’s logo will be used on packaging for select PepsiCo brands, including Pepsi, Lay’s and Quaker Oats.

So far, Expo 2020 has now announced 10 official premier partners including Accenture, Cisco, DP World, Emirates Airlines, Emirates NBD, Etisalat, Nissan, SAP and Siemens and two official partners. DEWA and UPS are the official partners named so far.
