PepsiCo, Inc. today announced that its global "Banner Sun"potato chip portfolio has grown to more than $10 billion in annual retail sales, anchored by Lay's, the world's largest food brand and the No. 1 potato chip brand globally.

The "Banner Sun"logo – which appears on packaging for leading brands such as Lay's, Walkers, Smith's and Sabritas – has grown into a symbol for quality potato chips around the world. Lay's and Walkers are among PepsiCo's portfolio of 22 billion-dollar food and beverage brands, a number that has doubled since 2000 – further illustrating the strength of the company's worldwide food and beverage business.

Expansion into international markets has driven the success of PepsiCo's potato chip portfolio, with about 60 percent of "Banner Sun"sales coming from outside North America.
 
The top 10 markets are: the United States, United Kingdom, Russia, Canada, Spain, Australia, China, Mexico, Netherlands and India.
