India Asks Pepsi’s Nooyi to Lower Sugar Content

An official of India’s three-month-old government asked Pepsico’s Indra Nooyi to reduce the sugar content of her company’s beverages and pitched the snack-food maker’s India-born CEO to develop more nutritious foods for the nation’s school-aged children. “I suggested to them to research and develop products which will be healthy and will also contain proteins,” Food Processing Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal told reporters in New Delhi, following her meeting with Nooyi. “As people are becoming busy, the children will be immensely benefited if such products are launched.” (Bloomberg.com)
