Blog: Dean BestWe're on the money on a bumper results day

Dean Best | 11 February 2010

Another bumper day of results saw the headlines grabbed by PepsiCo boss Indra Nooyi.

The PepsiCo chairman and CEO said the snacks giant has its sights on new geographies - and new product categories.

Earlier in the day, we heard Danone chief Franck Riboud insist the French food giant had dealt with the challenges of 2009 better than the company had expected - and then set out his own plans for expansion this year.

However, while Riboud said Danone was targeting new markets in Russia and China, Orkla Brands, the Norway-food business with operations across Scandinavia and overseas, warned that the Russian market was showing little sign of improving in 2010.
