Sidel Services has cut PepsiCo energy by 19%, thanks to feedback from an annual survey.

The company hired former Tetra Pak chief, Dag Gronevik, as vice president of Services, to reorganise its services operations.

The survey responses reveal the realities of the current business environment, with issues such as increasing regulation, economic volatility and rising raw material prices,” said Gronevik.
