Anheuser-Busch, PepsiCo Agree to Joint Purchasing

10/14/2009
ST. LOUIS and PURCHASE, N.Y. -- Anheuser-Busch and PepsiCo agreed to jointly purchase certain indirect U.S. goods and services for use primarily in their U.S. operations, allowing both companies to make purchases more efficiently at competitive prices, the companies said in a joint statement.

Goods and services falling under the program include information technology hardware; office supplies; travel and facilities services; transportation; and maintenance, repair and operating supplies.

The move also effectively manages costs that can be reinvested back into areas that will grow their businesses. Specific cost-savings will depend on the negotiated terms for each purchase.

A team of procurement experts from each company will focus on common areas of spending, and negotiate purchases on behalf of both companies, according to the companies.
