PepsiCo is opening a new food manufacturing facility in Wuhan, China.
The plant, which is PepsiCo's sixth food manufacturing site in its Greater China Region, is part of the company's plans to drive the continued growth of its China business and expand further into central and western China.
The Wuhan plant is the first foods facility built by PepsiCo in China in line with the criteria established by Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (Leed), the green building standard.
The plant is expected to use 30% less water and 20% less energy compared to the 2006 baseline for PepsiCo China Foods manufacturing plants, reducing operating costs in the long term.
Three existing plants in PepsiCo's manufacturing network in China are Leed-certified: Pepsi bottling plants in Chongqing, Nanchang and Kunming.
The PepsiCo plant in Wuhan is equipped with an advanced potato chip production line and has the capacity to produce approximately 15,000 tonnes of Lay's potato chips annually.
