PepsiCo launches paper multipack bags for Snack A Jacks

Sustainability

PepsiCo unveils new paper outer bags for all Snack A Jacks multipacks, slashing virgin plastic use by 65 tonnes annually.

The eco-conscious packaging, available in Salt & Vinegar, Sour Cream & Chive, and BBQ flavours, can be easily recycled at home, significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 52% per pack.

This initiative is part of PepsiCo Positive, the company's sustainability agenda aiming for net zero emissions by 2040.

In May 2023, PepsiCo unveiled 'bagless' multipacks for its Snack A Jacks brand.

Across Europe, PepsiCo plans to eliminate fossil-based plastic in snack bags by 2030, transitioning to 100% recycled or renewable materials.

Gareth Callan, Sustainability Lead, PepsiCo UK & Ireland, said: Our outer paper multibag packs are working well on Walkers Baked, giving us the confidence to roll out this format across more of our snacks brands. The new packaging will help further reduce our non-fossil plastic use, while also helping to lower our carbon footprint as we work towards our commitment to creating a world where packaging never becomes waste.
