The Pepsi Bottling Group (PBG) is the world's largest manufacturer, seller and distributor of Pepsi-Cola beverages — some of the world's most recognized consumer brands. PBG became a publicly-traded company in March 1999 through one of the largest initial public offerings in the history of the New York Stock Exchange.
PBG generates nearly $11 billion in annual sales. It operates in the United States, Canada, Greece, Mexico, Russia, Spain and Turkey, accounting for more than one-half of the Pepsi-Cola beverages sold in North America, and about 40 percent of the Pepsi-Cola system volume worldwide.
We Sell Soda
The PBG sales force of more than 30,000 customer representatives sells and delivers nearly 200 million eight-ounce servings of Pepsi-Cola beverages per day. PBG's focus is on superior sales execution, customer service, merchandising and operating excellence.
While PBG's mission states, "We Sell Soda," the fastest growing segment of our business is non-carbonated beverages, including the number one brand of bottled water in the U.S., Aquafina, and the number one bottled water trademark in Mexico, Electropura. PBG's non-carbonated portfolio includes Tropicana juice drinks, Lipton Iced Tea, Starbucks Frappuccino and Doubleshot, the SoBe line of healthy refreshment beverages, and Dole single-serve juices and blends.
PBG's operations in Greece, Mexico, Russia, Spain and Turkey also bottle and sell regional products and brands, including the Mirinda flavors line, Manzanita Sol, KAS flavors and mixers, Fiesta flavors and Fruko flavored carbonated soft drinks.
