PepsiCo UK is investing £15.2 million in its Walkers snacks manufacturing campus at Leicester. The investment will support the introduction of a new production line making kettle-fried potato crisps, such as the Red Sky and Walkers Extra Crunchy varieties.

PepsiCo is also hiring 110 people as part of the expansion programme. First established in Leicester in 1982, the Walkers site, situated in the Beaumont Leys area of the city, employs over 2,000 people.

As PepsiCo celebrates its 30th anniversary in the area, a number of long serving members of staff are reaching retirement this year. PepsiCo is now looking to both fill these vacancies whilst also creating new roles as the site expands. In the past year alone, Walkers has employed over 300 people from the Leicester area to help boost the production team.

PepsiCo has invested £14.4 million and £9.3 million in its Quaker Oats site at Cupar, Scotland and its distribution site in Peterlee, respectively this year.
