PepsiCo is the nation's largest food company and second largest in the world. Its annual earnings top $60 billion and sells varieties of snacks, cereal and juice beside soda. PepsiCo is the top contributor among food makers to the "No on 37" campaign in California. PepsiCo is a member of the Grocery Manufacturers Association, a powerful trade group that has so far contributed $375,000 to the No on 37 campaigns. PepsiCo brands span five divisions: Pepsi-Cola, Frito-Lay, Gatorade, Tropicana, and Quaker. Estimates are that up to 85 percent of corn grown in the U.S. in genetically engineered, and a significant number of PepsiCo brands contain some form of corn. The scope of Frito-Lay products potentially impacted by GMO labeling is vast. Another PepsiCo brand sure to make HQ nervous over GMO labeling is Mother's, which claims its products are "all natural," but includes GMOs.
