At Frito-Lay, we strive to grow our business to meet consumer demands while keeping in mind what’s sustainable for the long term. One challenge we’re tackling head on is growing our business while shrinking our water consumption.
Since 1999, we’ve reduced our water use by 40% for each bag of snacks we make across all our plants. That’s 1.5 billion gallons of water we’ve saved. And that’s no small drop in the bucket.
- Reduced water usage 46% across all manufacturing sites since 1999.
- Our facility in Casa Grande, Ariz., installed a water recovery and reuse system that recycles 50% to 75% of water. The recycled process water meets Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) primary and secondary drinking water standards.
