Pepsi loses fizz, to take back case on farmers

May 03, 2019 12:59 IST

Under fire for suing farmers over a potato variety, PepsiCo on Friday said that it will withdraw its lawsuits against a number of potato farmers accused of infringing its patent. After suing four farmers for cultivating the FC5 potato variety, grown exclusively for PepsiCo's popular Lay's potato chips, the snack food and drinks maker said last week it wanted to "amicably settle" the issue. "After discussions with the government, the company has agreed to withdraw the cases against the farmers," a PepsiCo India spokesman said
