PepsiCo is suing Gujarat farmers for growing potatoes

Apr 26, 2019 15:52 IST

American food, snack, and beverage company PepsiCo India has filed a case against farmers in Gujarat for growing a special variety of potato. The firm is alleging that the farmers are cultivating FC-5, a patented potato variety, that is used to make PepsiCo's famous Lay's chips. The company has said that the potato is copyrighted by them and demands the farmers to pay around 1 crore rupees in damages. At the same time, the farmer's union has accused Pepsi of harassment and says the allegation is harming India's seed and food sovereignty.
