PepsiCo seeks to identify materials and technologies that can deliver new and improved performance to their packaging.



In particular, we are seeking materials that can provide increased functionality in a few key areas:

  1. Circular economy/Sustainability
    • With increased scrutiny on single-use packaging, PepsiCo is interested in new materials and technology that enable packaging to be reused at end of life, preferable again as packaging for the same product.
    • For some materials that are not readily reusable or recyclable, degradation is the preferred end-of-life. As such, PepsiCo is interested in packaging with unique pre- & post-consumer functionality, such as edible, dissolvable, or compostable films.
  2. Functionality
    • E-Commerce: With the rise of the internet economy and increased consumer demand for online shipping, PepsiCo is interested in materials technologies that deliver new and different functionalities (e.g. protection, authentication of freshness) to the primary and secondary packaging used for e-commerce.

Please note: all proposed technologies must have advanced beyond the conceptual stage.


  1. 循環型社会/サステナビリティ
    • 使い捨てパッケージへの懸念が高まる中、PepsiCo社は寿命までリユース可能で、望ましくは同じ商品のパッケージングに使用可能な新しい材料や技術に関心を寄せている
    • リユースやリサイクルに対応できない材料については、分解できることが望ましい。PepsiCo社は、食べられたり、溶かせたり、堆肥化したりできるフィルム材といった、消費者による利用前、利用後に独自の機能を発揮するパッケージに興味を持っている。
  2. 機能
    • e-コマース: インターネット経済や、消費者のオンライン配送へのニーズの増加に伴い、依頼主はe-コマース向け一次/二次包装に対して新しい機能をもたらす材料技術(例えば、保護作用や鮮度の認証機能など)に関心を持っている

注意点: 提案技術はコンセプト段階以上のものであること

Key success Criteria

All proposed packaging technologies will be evaluated on their potential to positively impact one or more of the following characteristics:

  • Durability – Packaging should be able to withstand the manufacturing process, warehousing and distribution.
  • Recyclability / Environmental Impact
  • Ease of production
  • Ease of use by consumers
  • Retention of product freshness
  • Cost
  • Innovativeness

Please present information regarding how your proposed technology can meet the above criteria.


  • 耐久性 –生産プロセス、保管時、流通において耐久性を維持している
  • リサイクル性 /環境への影響
  • 製造のしやすさ
  • 消費者の使いやすさ
  • 商品の鮮度の保持
  • コスト
  • 革新性
