Health and Nutrition: The Role of a Global Food and Beverage Company

Dr. Mehmood Khan, the Chief Scientific Officer and CEO of the Global Nutrition Group for PepsiCo, [...]speaks on the integrated knowledge of the food production systems and vertical business integration that is required for a global company at the 2011 Pardee Distinguished Lecture. He posed the challenge that there are 1 billion people in the world today who remain hungry and undernourished, yet ironically the number of people in the world who are obese is exactly the same: 1 billion. He argued that the global nutrition challenge is the challenge of responding to both these numbers and that companies like PepsiCo have a central role to play in addressing this challenge.

Hosted by Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future on April 15, 2011.
