PepsiCo Planning Price Increases

PepsiCo, along with Coca-Cola, Nestlé, P&G, and Kimberly-Clark, have issued similar warnings in recent months due to a host of factors, including disruptions in global supply chains and rising demand that has pushed up raw-material prices.

The move to raise prices will also be used to offset higher advertising and marketing costs, which rose 30% in the period as the company looked to take advantage of a reopening of the US economy.

NamNews Implications:

  • Despite government reassurances, anyone in supply and retail knowns that significant costs increases have been building within supply chains.
  • These cannot be absorbed and so will result in shelf price increases...
  • ...and strong brands will be able to sustain demand.
  • In terms of sizes of price increases, this will depend on moves by significant players in each category.
  • We would anticipate double-figure rather than single figure % increases...
