Pepsi recognises land rights

 IPS 24 March 2019

Soft drinks giant PepsiCo has agreed to recognise land rights across the world. New policies implemented by the company – which also owns brands such as Gatorade, Tropicana and Quaker - will see a zero-tolerance policy towards land-grabbing and a pledge that all future acquisitions should come with the consent of local communities. The move follows a similar promise by rivals Coca-Cola and is being viewed favourably by anti-poverty campaigners. (1079 Words) - By Carey L. Biron
