PepsiCo, which acquired Bare Foods earlier this year, saw good growth in its Frito-Lay business. The company however faces stiff competition, particularly from top rival Coca-Cola (KO). The food and beverages business in the US is seeing pressure from high costs and shifting consumer trends and PepsiCo’s beverages segment is facing heat in particular, with increasing competition from smaller rivals.
