Human Sustainability

At PepsiCo Australia & New Zealand, we are committed to playing a responsible and supportive role in the health and wellness of Australians & New Zealanders. We recognise our responsibility and will continue to do our part to make a meaningful and lasting difference.

Australians and New Zealanders are more concerned than ever about their health and wellness and are looking to achieve a balanced diet through healthy lifestyle choices. Our goal is to provide a range of high quality food and beverage products, from simple treats to healthier offerings. We continue to make tremendous strides in transforming our portfolio to create products that fit into healthy, active lifestyles. We have reformulated many of our existing products to reduce saturated fat, sodium and added sugars. In other cases we have increased the whole grain, fibre and micronutrient content of our products.

PepsiCo Australia & New Zealand adheres to voluntary industry wide marketing practices which include specific guidelines for advertising to children which are consistent with our overall global strategy. We sell a range of products that meet the nutrition criteria of the various State Government school canteen strategies. We do not place vending machines in primary schools and provide a ‘Smart Options’ range of snacks for vending machines in high schools and health facilities.

Refer PepsiCo ANZ Policy on Responsible Advertising to Children.

PepsiCo ANZ is proud to be a member of the Healthier Australia Commitment, an initiative being led by the food and grocery industry to help Australians live healthier, active lives. Healthier Australia Commitment members work collectively to create a healthier nation in the Australian marketplace, the workplace and in the community. A key focus of the Healthier Australia Commitment is promoting the concept of energy balance - i.e. balancing the amount and quality of food and beverages consumed with physical activity.

Health Star Rating

The Health Star Rating (HSR) is a voluntary front-of-pack labelling system that rates the overall nutritional profile of packaged food, and assigns it a rating from ½ a star to 5 stars. It provides a quick, easy, standard way to compare similar packaged foods. The more stars, the healthier the choice.

The Health Star Rating system is a Government backed trans-Tasman voluntary system developed in collaboration with public health experts, the food industry and consumer groups

The Health Star Ratings for all of our PepsiCo snacks are available on our website. Please refer to the following downloads:

Refer to Australia Snacks HSR or New Zealand Snacks HSR

The HSR system is currently under review. Once the Government review is complete, we will then assess the most appropriate action for our product packaging.

Daily Intake guide (%DI)

The HSR system complements other information we provide for our products, like the nutrition information panel and the Daily Intake Guide (%DI). We will continue to provide the Daily Intake guide (%DI) on the front of all of our packs.

The %DI values are based on daily intakes, which are a set of government-approved reference values for acceptable intake of energy, protein, fat, saturated fat, carbohydrates, sugars, fibre and sodium. The %DI values show the amount (as a percentage) that one serving of a food contributes to your overall Daily Intake.
