PepsiCo‘s Frito-Lay North America division said that approximately 50 percent of its product portfolio will be made with all natural ingredients, including three of its biggest brands, Lay’s® potato chips, Tostitos® tortilla chips and SunChips® multigrain snacks. The products made with all natural ingredients do not have any artificial or synthetic ingredients, and they do not contain any artificial flavors or artificial preservatives, or ingredients such as monosodium glutamate (MSG), yet still have the great taste consumers expect from Frito-Lay.
Frito-Lay Canada is now selling its SunChips in a 100% compostable packaging, which is obviously good news. The bad news about it is that the packs are very noisy. The fans of the product have even registered a group on Facebook, entitled “Sorry but I can’t hear you over this SunChips bag” with over 52 thousand fans to date, and the brand is doing everything possible to convince the public that loud and green should win over quiet and harmful. If consumers want to eat these chips, but hate the sound the packaging makes, the brand offers them a pair of earplugs.
