Date:10/20/2008

PepsiCo joins the North Carolina Research Campus as its newest tenant partner. The NC Research Campus is the vision of David Murdock, Chairman/Owner of Dole Food Inc. Nine universities and colleges (including Duke University, UNC, and NC State)will have research units located at the new Campus in Kannapolis, North Carolina. The Campus promises to be a world class center for industry and academic research for human health and nutrition.

Kannapolis, NC (PRWEB) October 20, 2008 -- David Murdock and officials from the North Carolina Research Campus formally announced at its Grand Opening today that PepsiCo will be the latest industry partner to establish a presence at the new Center. PepsiCo is one of the world's largest food and beverage companies, with 2007 annual revenues of more than $39 billion. Its principal businesses include: Gatorade sports drinks, Frito-Lay snacks, Pepsi-Cola beverages, Tropicana juices and Quaker foods. "Having great minds from companies like PepsiCo at the Campus is exactly what I envisioned for the project. I know they have a strong commitment to health, wellness, and nutrition research for people around the world," says David Murdock, Chairman, Dole Food Inc. and Castle & Cooke Inc.

PepsiCo was an early adopter regarding health commitments to its consumers which includes:

  • Providing a Spectrum of Good Choices. This may range from the small indulgences our consumers love to a wider variety of improved, enhanced, and fortified products that meet their needs for better health.
  • Applying the Best Available Science. Because nutrition science is constantly evolving, PepsiCo evaluates major new health learning that applies to their products and makes formulation and labeling decisions based on the best available science.
