"We are pleased with our performance as our businesses and associates displayed tremendous agility and resilience across geographies and categories in an evolving and dynamic environment," PepsiCo CEO, Ramon Laguarta said.

In the third quarter, PepsiCo revenue rose 6.7% from the year-ago quarter to $23.45 billion and Earnings per share increased from $1.95 to $2.25 in Q3.
