PepsiCo to Test Out Selling Water in Cans Amid Plastic Backlash

June 27, 2019, 1:53 PM

PepsiCo Inc., facing an industrywide backlash against plastic, will experiment with putting its Aquafina water in cans.

The beverage giant will begin selling the cans next year, offering them to partners such as stadiums and restaurants, PepsiCo said June 27. The company also will try out the repackaged product at some retail stores.

If the new packaging catches on, it would be one of the highest-profile cases of companies ditching plastic. Aquafina is a top-selling water brand in the U.S.—along with Coca-Cola Co.’s Dasani—and it’s nearly synonymous with the clear plastic bottles that have lined supermarket shelves for decades.
