08 Oct 2018 --- PepsiCo's Walkers brand is set to launch the UK’s first nationwide recycling scheme for crisp packets. Consumers will be encouraged to either drop off their packets at one of the hundreds of public access collection points that will be developed all around the country or alternatively post them for free directly to TerraCycle for recycling. The move comes after intense public pressure for Walkers to address the volume of plastic waste generated through its packaging.
Under the scheme, developed in partnership with the recycling company TerraCycle, all crisp packets will be accepted. Once the packets have been collected they will be cleaned, shredded and turned into small plastic pellets which will then be converted into useful plastic items, such as benches and fence posts.
27 Aug 2018 --- Frito-Lay has introduced personalized messaging to its variety crisp packets to allow parents to connect with children while away from home.

As a result, Frito-Lay Variety Packs, one of the flagship brands from PepsiCo's Frito-Lay division, is giving parents a simple and convenient way to provide love and encouragement during the school day with the launch of Snackable Notes.

INTERVIEW: We talk with the CEO of Rap Snacks, James Lindsay, about the return of the hip-hop munchies brand, working with artists, and advice for young black entrepreneurs.
With the decline of blog culture and print magazines, artists are forever looking for new ways to expand their brand and reach new audiences. The rise of social media, Instagram in particular, has slowly transformed artist exposure into more and more of a bite-sized initiative, complete with easily digestible packaging. Somewhere at this juncture between snacking and marketing, stands entrepreneur James Lindsay, the CEO and Founder of Rap Snacks. To briefly provide some of his backstory, he graduated with a Bachelor of Science, specialized in Marketing. He embodies Rick Ross' "buy back the block" ethos, way before the song cemented the statement. After working at an ethnic hair care company, Johnson Products, for a period of time post graduation, he was inspired enough, by both his simple love of snack food and his knack for business, to create Rap Snacks Inc in 1994. He's grown it into a five million dollar business.
