PepsiCo to invest $216 million into regenerative agriculture practices in US

PepsiCo has invested $216 million in long-term, strategic partnership agreements with three US-based farmer-facing organizations to drive the adoption of regenerative agriculture practices across the US.

The partnerships are with Practical Farmers of Iowa (PFI), Soil and Water Outcomes Fund (SWOF), and the IL Corn Growers Association (ICGA) to establish and scale financial, agronomic, and social programs that enable the transition to the new practices through education, upfront investment in outcomes, cost-sharing, peer coaching, and networking.

.PepsiCo expects the combined impacts of the partnerships will support the uptake of regenerative practices on more than 3 million acres, delivering approximately 3 million metric tons of GHG emission reductions and removals by 2030.

Buttonwood Farm was started by Matt and Eleanor Tiefenbrun in 2010 in California, Mo. It began with chickens, and almost a decade later, the operation raises eggs year-round and turkeys for the Thanksgiving season.
