PepsiCo opens new distribution center in Spain, includes CNG station

PepsiCo launched its new and innovative logistics center in Villafría, which will support the snack plant that the company has in Burgos since 1971 when it acquired Matutano. The new plant has a surface area of ​​4,600 m2 and is 42 meters high, making it one of the tallest of its kind both locally and nationally. With the new operation, PepsiCo plans to increase exports to international markets such as France, Italy, Portugal, Greece, Cyprus, Belgium and the Netherlands.

This project will also offer greater environmental and social commitment, since the new center will have a CNG filling station, which involved an investment of approximately 200,000 euros. The vehicle fleet that will transport products between the production plant and the warehouse will run on natural gas, which will reduce CO2 emissions by 34% and greenhouse gases (GHG) by 87.2%.

“This new logistics center stands out for its focus on innovation and sustainability, two key elements to remain competitive in the market and improve the service both for our snack plant and for our end customer,” said Ángel Valín, head of Primary Logistics of PepsiCo Spain.

“At PepsiCo we always seek improvement, focusing on innovation and efficiency, but always with a firm commitment to sustainability and communities, and I am convinced that this new center is a great example of this,” added Víctor Pérez, director of the PepsiCo’s supply chain for southwestern Europe.

PepsiCo began its activity in Burgos in 1971 with the acquisition of Matutano and its production center, this being the first plant that the multinational acquired in Europe.
