Ferran Adria (pictured right), whose restaurant El Bulli in Spain has been named best in the world five times by Restaurant Magazine, will work with PepsiCo to help develop new methods and concepts for creative food innovation. This partnership follows an existing successful relationship between the two parties which began in 2005 and involved Chef Adria’s consultation on PepsiCo Spain’s Alvalle brand of chilled vegetable soups and Lay’s Artesanas 100% olive oil among others.

Ferran Adria will share creative principles, methods, procedures and techniques in order to assist PepsiCo in the creation of new snackable foods, breakfast options and convenience alternatives. He will help to inspire PepsiCo’s product development team by sharing samples, food trends and observations from around the world.

One specific area of focus for the partnership will be exploring the culinary arts to enable PepsiCo to broaden its portfolio of healthier choices. This includes developing taste enhancement ingredients and natural preserving techniques in order to reduce the use of fat and oil in current products, therefore making them healthier.

Indra Nooyi, PepsiCo chairman and chief executive, explains: “PepsiCo has had a long standing reputation for food innovation and this partnership, with arguably the best chef in the world, will enable us to move further forward with new creative concepts and ideas. We will also share our own creative principles and ideas, developed over our 46 year history, in order to help assist Ferran Adria with his mission to create a world leading gastronomic think tank and research facility in the future.”
