Pepsi-Cola Products Philippines Inc. (PCPPI), the exclusive manufacturer of PepsiCo beverages in the country, has expanded to e-commerce business to widen customer reach amid community quarantine measures.
In a statement Tuesday, PCPPI said its e-commerce website pepsiproducts.ph started to receive online orders from customers on October 5 and also providing in-home deliveries.
“With mobility restrictions brought about by varying phases of lockdown, we have decided to adopt e-commerce to our overall operations to heed the call of our customers who wish to have more access to our product while they are at home,” PCPPI president and chief executive officer Frederick Ong said.
Ong added that going online allows the company to counter business disruptions due to the limited foot traffic to physical stores.
“Pepsiproducts.ph is another way to make our products more accessible to entrepreneurs who want to venture into the distribution business. We are positive that this new revenue stream can boost PCPPI’s sales outlook in the months ahead,” he said.
Ong said the company has hired separate administrative and delivery personnel that will focus on the online venture.
The beverage firm is piloting its e-commerce business in the south part of Metro Manila — Las Piñas, Muntinlupa, and Parañaque as well as in San Pedro and Biñan in Laguna, and Carmona, Cavite.
PCPPI also targets to expand its e-commerce service in different parts of the country.
“We see this digital program as part of our efforts to promote safe and sustainable business practices in the hopes of growing with our people, customers, and partner communities,” Ong added. (PNA)
