PCPPI (Pepsi-Cola Phils.)

  1. 1. Juphil A. Lamanilao BSChE-4 Pepsi-Cola PPI Taste the one that’s forever young. Starting with a brief lecture regarding the company’s profile, I learned a lot; how Pepsi got its name, their brands & its manufacturing process. Behind the epitome of their success as a beverage company, is how to make the most difference since Coke is trying to gain market share in the beverage market. Before exploring into the production, just as informed, letting us to taste once again their product but far exceed to the taste limit and so pairing it with “chichiritas”. For me, there isn’t a huge difference in taste yet Pepsi tastes sweeter than Coke and is less carbonated. Water as an essential ingredient in the company’s beverages must be the top priority to ensure that the operations preserve the quality of the water resources. There were improvements installed in the operations so as to not only to reduce the water use but also to make more efficient use of it, which is through reverse osmosis recovery system in the water treatment area where it involves careful treatment, filtration and purification. The system starts with the purest water it can distill. The influent is stored in the storage tank and then passing through an ion exchange unit. On the left side is the sand filter system, used to purify water; free from taste and odor including pathogens. On the other side is the CO2 plant, requiring pressurized gas for the production of carbonated soft-drinks. It’s a first time to see the actual appearance of the equipments including mixing tanks, caustic tank, & NH3 liquid receiver. The ingredients are stored in clean, sanitary areas and those items that require refrigeration are kept in their temperature-controlled areas. Also learned that the PCPPI –Cebu branch doesn’t produced bottles instead they only received incoming shipments of such from the mother company. For the recycled bottles, to keep it sanitary and ensure quality throughout the filling process; these bottles travel rapidly through a detector and rejected those found unclean guided by manual inspection, rinsed thoroughly with filtered water before proceeding directly to the filler. The filler is where the syrups from the mixing tanks are combined with the purified water from the filtration process. The liquid is then carbonated. I also learned the significance of the code imprinted on the bottles marked with a date code & a plant site code.
