A new podcast is live — “Spotlight Series: Innovation Process & Action with PepsiCo Labs General Manager Anna Farberov

With so much happening in the world and with this the week when Shoptalk was to be held, Chris Walton and Anne Mezzenga, to honor Shoptalk, are celebrating women in retail this week with an all new exclusive podcast series for Omni Talk

They first turn their podcast spotlight on Anna Farberov of PepsiCo Labs. 

Anna Farberov and her team at PepsiCo Labs source the best and brightest start-ups across multiple sectors of the retail industry to ensure that PepsiCo is on the bleeding edge of the future of the industry. From pilots utilizing the gig economy to new ways of thinking of stores as “individual households,” you’ll want to hear her give the full picture of what they’re cooking up in the lab and across the full supply chain. There’s a takeaway for everyone, from the start-up tech company ready to pitch one of the largest CPG’s in the world to the retailers carrying their products.
