PepsiCO honored Mansfield with this prestigious award during the general assembly meeting at their annual supply conference. Nominated by several stakeholders within the Pepsi Bottling Company, Mansfield was credited as a “strategic partner” for PepsiCO. The presenters cited Mansfield’s pioneering implementation of a comprehensive fuel management program as a key to their operational success in the past year.
