Attitudes and opinions in the U.S. of the food and beverage industry9Questions Consumers Are Asking 10 Packaged food used to be a convenience that was simply enjoyed. Now its a loaded gun. Questions and concerns have created a series of global trends that impact the reputations and bottom lines of food companies operating in an increasingly complex environment.

Where was this manufactured? How was it produced? What are the ingredients? Does this soda contain high fructose corn syrup? Should I be focused on getting more protein into my breakfast?What does your environmental footprint look like? How do you treat your farmers, suppliers and employees? 10Understanding The Industry and External Pressures


11Obesity Influences the Dialogue

Theres a growing global health paradox: while people in developing nations are increasingly overweight, many of these consumers are undernourished. Fast food, processed foods, sweets and snacks may be part of the problem, but they fit seamlessly into a broader story that few stakeholders fully understand. As a result of this landscape, regulators, health professionals and industry leaders have become more focused on calories from beverages and processed foods, while also increasing their scrutiny of food labels and health claims and industry-supported research. 12 12Social Media is Mainstream Media

What makes the current food environment so daunting is the connectivity of the digital age. Social media often drives or amplifies what happens in traditional channels such as top-tier daily publications or online news and commentary channels. Conversations and content about nutrition, health and food products are amplified through the food community, creating an echo chamber that often starts with experts and is carried by enthusiasts and average consumers. 13 13The Rise of the Corp-sumer

When it comes to issues and advocacy, consumers and activists have more than an opinion they have a voice. Consumers are passionate about their food choices and about the companies they buy from; theyll take action for or against you based on how you engage with them on the issues and initiatives they care about. 14 A New Issue Import/Export Dynamic

As multi-nationals enter new markets, the old paradigm of food issues being limited to developed markets and by geographic boundaries has changed. As markets develop, issues develop with them and new influencers join others in driving conversations. Navigating the complexity now and engaging in meaningful ways is critical to success. 15 Glocal Thinking and Doing is a Must

What we eat has personal, political, social, environmental and economic implications across the globe. From obesity to food ingredients, sustainability to food safety, food security to commodities pricing, food issues dominate our global and local food dialogues, and shape the way companies and industries enter new markets and do business in those markets. Understanding the issues that are being discussed at the local and regional levels, the influencers who are driving those conversations, and the nuances of local and regional market engagement is critical to your success. 16

Influencers Use Peer-to-Peer Networks to Create Social Currency

Deeply engaging financial thought leaders, health professionals, influencers and other stakeholders means reaching them in the online communities they know and regularly use. Creating a unique presence on the niche social networks that are important to key audiences helps build credibility and trust relationships that start online can become the foundation for finding vocal supporters who can take action offline. 17 How Others In the Industry Are Reacting to the Landscape 18 From Candy to Innovation: With the worlds cocoa supply at risk, concentrated primarily in West Africa and susceptible to disease, and stakeholders calling for support of impoverished cocoa farmers, Mars decided to take action. In mapping the cocoa genome, Mars was seen as a leader, bringing solutions to a delicate agricultural and economic problem. More than Just Coffee: While suffering declining financial returns and an increasingly competitive market, Starbucks heralded the return of CEO Howard Schultz and highlighted its deep bench of talented executives by partnering its thought leaders with select stakeholders in a series of global conversations, securing the companys corporate reputation as a leader in not just coffee, but in responsible capitalism, corporate citizenship and sustainability.Thinking Local: In the wake of a series of crises over the sourcing and ingredients of products sold in its restaurants, Yum! launched a global program that tracked and anticipated food and nutrition-related issues and influencers, leading to many of its brands announcing reformulated products based on unique market demands around the world. Healthy Food Initiative: After successfully demonstrating that sustainable products should not and do not need to cost more for its customers, Walmart brought those same principles to healthy foods. Declaring that no family should ever have to make a choice between foods they can afford and foods that are good for them, Walmart announced a program with Michelle Obamas Lets Move! that includes working with manufacturers to reformulate packaged goods, creating its own healthy foods seal, and lowering prices on fruits and vegetables.

Certain loud voices may be unmovable, and require development of credible surrogates more likely to support PepsiCo while we identify the key advocates we need to continue to engage. 24 24The Research-led Mapping ProcessAt the top of the pyramid, special strategies are often required.

Focusing on the issue of most interest to the individual is both possible and critical.

Whether due to beliefs, position or role, some can be intractable and immovable, requiring development of other equally credible individuals to articulate your view.Engagement & Influence 25 25Digital Stakeholder Identification and Mapping 26 By mapping digital stakeholders, PepsiCo can identify online personalities who have the potential to become vocal online ambassadors for the companys initiatives and designate an approach for activating them.

Market27A multi-stakeholder world means opinions are formed across diverse channels, a debate can start anywhere and new influencers can rise to prominence each day. Navigating the complexity and engaging stakeholders in meaningful ways is critical to success, but PepsiCo must first start with the potential allies and influencers who are the most vocal, credible and trusted sources of information. FTI will immediately leverage its global heat-mapping tool to identify and chart a course for engaging prime stakeholders early, securing initial wins that will help PepsiCo establish broader relationships in key communities.
