PepsiCo plans to replace plastic rings across beverage multipacks with paper-based solutions in the US and Canada.
This builds upon PepsiCo’s progress in Canada, where the transition to paperboard is beginning to roll out, the cola giant noted.
PepsiCo will use paperboard wraps and paperboard clips for its multipacks in place of traditional plastic rings across brands like Pepsi, Pepsi Zero, MTN DEW, Starry, Gatorade, and 7Up in Canada, among others.
The new packaging is easy to implement on the shelf for customers, has a consumer-friendly branded design, is made from recycled materials, and is recyclable, the company added.

Elsewhere, PepsiCo has commenced construction of a snack factory in Indonesia's West Java, marking its return to Southeast Asia's largest economy after splitting with a local partner two years ago.
PepsiCo's affiliate Fritolay Netherlands Holding B.V. and Indofood, a unit of Indonesia's largest food company Indofood Group, ended a 30-year joint venture in 2021 without providing any reason, when Indofood bought PepsiCo's minority stake.
