• Al Carey, CEO of PepsiCo North America, reportedly told a Consumer Analyst Group of New York conference that the company is making the changes necessary to be successful in the online arena.

“Some parts of our portfolio play better than others in e-commerce," he said. "It’s not a material share of the business yet, but it is an extremely fast growing part of our business and we feel very grounded in how we are doing well in it.”

Carey added that the company needs "to do some work on packaging to be in more of e-commerce-friendly packaging, which we’re doing right now. We’ll get there, but we’re a little behind on that."
