“India is among the fastest growing markets for PepsiCo in the Africa, Middle East and South Asia region,” said Eugene Willemsen, chief executive officer of PepsiCo for this geographical region. “This decade is India’s and at PepsiCo, we are focused on building capabilities, availability, and expanding penetration across the nation,” he added.

PepsiCo India signed a pact with the Assam Skill Development Mission and directorate of employment and craftsman training, to foster women’s empowerment.

The plant plans to employ diverse talent, and at least 75 percent of women employees. The company also intends to set up its first community learning center to upskill women over the next two years.

Ahmed ElSheikh, president, PepsiCo India, said, “Our investment in the greenfield facility in Assam stands as a significant milestone, and is aligned with India’s vision of self-reliance.”
