Industrial Development Minister Satish Mahana said that our aim is to make Uttar Pradesh top in the ranking of ‘Ease of Doing Business’. To make this commitment a reality, we have formulated sector specific policies.

No partnership with India can be complete without working closely with Uttar Pradesh. The plant will implement PepsiCo’s best-in-class global technology, sustainability and diversity. Ahmed Alsheikh, President and CEO, PepsiCo India said that the launch of our new Foods Plant at Kosi Kalan, Mathura is in line with the spirit of a self-reliant India. This has become PepsiCo’s single largest investment in the country at Rs 814 crore.
The Kosi Kalan Foods plant in Mathura with an investment of Rs 814 crore is PepsiCo India’s largest greenfield investment in manufacturing in India. This is the company’s first ‘Make and Move’ factory, which will help meet the growing demand for Lay’s, the company’s iconic brand of potato chips. This state-of-the-art foods plant is in line with the development agenda of the state government.
This will provide direct and indirect employment to 1500 people in the state. Aiming to have at least 30 per cent of the total workforce of women in the plant will promote diversity. PepsiCo India intends to procure 1,50,000 tonnes of potatoes annually from the state. For this, the company will build a strong relationship with 5000 farmers of the state.
