Global food brand supports zero hunger

PepsiCo announced a new goal to help 50 million people gain ready access to nutritious foods by 2030. The company will expand its Food for Good food security programme and offer more affordable, healthy food products. This new goal is in addition to the company's support for the Zero Hunger Private Sector Pledge by pledging US$100 million in positive agriculture and food security initiatives by 2030. These include training farmers and helping strengthen agricultural production with plans to increase crop yields and help ensure a more resilient food supply.
Other investments include a $1 million grant to World Food Programme (WFP) to co-create a multi-country partnership in the Middle East and North Africa. This investment will focus on improving communities' long-term food security needs affected by climate change, conflict, natural disasters, and humanitarian crises. This grant builds upon a decade-long partnership with WFP. Another pledge will help the She Feeds the World programme. This initiative collaborates with CARE to ensure gender equality and economic empowerment for women agriculture workers across the globe, into Colombia, Nigeria, Turkey, Thailand, and Vietnam in 2022. The programme is currently active in Uganda, Egypt, and Peru. (Image from Unsplash)
