New Salmonella outbreak

A new outbreak of Salmonella poisoning has occurred this summer.

Melanie Brown caught up with Dr Mehmood Khan, Executive Vice President & Chief Scientific Officer of PepsiCo Global R&D, who was the guest speaker at Campden BRI Day on 11th June. Dr Khan, who trained as a physician, joined PepsiCo in 2007 with a remit to fundamentally change the innovation process. His lecture described how this has been achieved by centralising control of R&D, recruiting outside the food and beverage sector, increasing the diversity of the senior management in terms of gender and ethnic background, increasing investment in R&D and looking to the crossover between disciplines for innovation. Investment in technology platforms rather than products has led to an accelerated growth rate.
