I couldn’t believe my eyes. The email invited me to Plano, Texas, and the headquarters of PepsiCo’s Frito-Lay division. Unprecedented!

• Meet PepsiCo’s CEO of Foods North America and other top execs.
• Experience new tastes from the R&D culinary center.
• See the pilot facility and new equipment.
• Walk through the Packaging R&D Lab.
• Take pictures.
• Shoot video.
• Ask questions.
• Learn about new products not in the market yet.
• Witness the company’s commitment to compostable packaging.

Yes, it was a dream of mine, but also … it HAPPENED.
