The beverage and snack company’s greatest growth last year came from the Frito-Lay North America business and from sales in the Asia, Middle East and Africa markets. CEO Indra Nooyi earlier this year said that Millennials are making some baffling choices as their tastes evolve. “We’ve never seen the consumer as confused as they are today,” Nooyi told analysts in April. “If you’d asked me a few years ago, it was about things like [diet drinks]. Now they view real sugar as good for you. They’re willing to go to organics even if they have high sugar, high salt and high fat. It’s a challenge.”
