PepsiCo UK recently announced it is investing £24 million in their Lincoln snack factory. Their intent is to upgrade their facilities, meet the growing consumer demand and secure the building’s future. The investment will see existing machinery at their long-standing city center site replaced by new equipment.
The investment also follows PepsiCo’s multimillion-pound investment in its Skelmersdale and Coventry Walkers factories to install specialist compact packaging machinery, leading to a 30% reduction in outer packaging on average across snacks multipacks. The new equipment at Lincoln will help remove even more packaging from their supply chain.
Nigel Beilby, site operations manager at PepsiCo’s Lincoln plant, said: “We’ve always had a strong heritage in the Midlands, providing jobs to almost 2,000 people in the region across our factories in Lincoln, Leicester and Coventry. For decades, our Lincoln factory has brought much-loved Quavers snacks to consumers up and down the country, and with this state-of-the-art technology, we’re confident that the site will continue to serve the nation for many years to come.”
