Fernando Kahane, Senior Marketing Director Walkers Snacks at PepsiCo, said: “We all know Christmas will look and feel quite different across the nation this year, but at PepsiCo we want to make a difference and give everyone a special moment over the festive period. When Covid-19 hit earlier this year, we were really proud to pledge £1m in support to the Trussell Trust. We are delighted to continue our fundraising efforts, by partnering with LadBaby & unleashing the ‘Power of Sausage Roll’ flavour crisps to do good with a 5p donation to Trussell Trust per pack.
“The savoury snacks category delivered an extra £22 million in sales over October to December 2019 vs the rest of the year. As the biggest brand in the UK savoury snacks category, we have an engaged audience and so – with the right activation – we hope to get people talking, raise some smiles, and help alleviate food poverty in the UK.’
