Desired outcome

PepsiCo seeks to identify materials and technologies that can deliver new and improved performance to their packaging for consumable products.

In particular, PepsiCo is seeking materials and technologies that can provide increase functionality in connected packaging:

1. Augment packaging as a means to exchange information between the consumer (or customer) and PepsiCo
• Product information –
•• Ingredient traceability
•• Recycling assistance or data on bottle history / environmental information
•• Story of the bottle
•• Usage suggestions
•• Product claims

• Consumption behavior – Where, when, how products are consumed

2) Use technology to create a more personalized and interactive experience for the consumer:
• Enhanced sensorial experiences
• Entertainment/gamification
• Customized experiences

Key Success Criteria

Must-Haves

  • Compliant with food safety regulations or line to sight to compliance
  • Ease of use by consumers (e.g. cellphone software/platforms)
  • Freedom to operate/IP
  • Protection of shared information
  • Durability – material technologies should be able to withstand the manufacturing process, warehousing, and distribution (or line of sight).
  • Recyclability / Environmental Impact
  • Retention of product freshness
  • Mix of solutions executable in short-term (<18 months) and long-term (<5 years)
  • Line of sight to commercial scalability
  • Scalable on commercially available assets

Nice-to-Haves

  • Compatible with existing supply chain and manufacturing capability
  • Direct to consumer (e-Commerce) focused solutions
  • Low unit cost and capital investment
  • Ease of production
  • Simplification of advanced technologies (e.g. Gatorade sweat patch)

Past work and Out of Scope List

Technologies that have been previously investigated would only have interest if a significant advancement has been made beyond PepsiCo’s knowledge. Many of these technologies have been marked as “banned” because PepsiCo is familiar with them and/or has studied previously.

Preferred Collaboration Types
