PepsiCo extends use of UBQ to point of sales across Europe

August 4, 2022 |

In Israel, UBQ Materials, a developer of advanced materials made from waste, announced that PepsiCo is expanding its use of UBQ across its supply chain with the launch of eco-friendly Lay’s display stands throughout Europe.
Following PepsiCo’s pilot incorporating UBQ to reduce the carbon footprint of shipping pallets, the company is expanding its collaboration with UBQ in additional categories across the supply chain. The new Lay’s Chips displays will be made in part with UBQ substituting conventional oil-based plastics.

UBQ is a bio-based thermoplastic, made from 100% unsorted household waste, including all organics.

Beyond the new product extension, PepsiCo has also expanded on the initial logistics pilot, ordering 30 thousand more shipping pallets made with UBQ. These pallets also feature recycled PP resin and recycled BOPP – the plastic film used in the company’s snack packaging – to complete the circular economy cycle.
