Job Description

You care about what your work means to the rest of the world so do we. Imagine what can happen when we work together. As part of the fast-paced and driven PepsiCo Global Regulatory Affairs team, you will be responsible for ensuring faultless compliance of ingredients, formulas and labeling for several brands within the Frito-Lay US Business Unit. This team is critical to the innovation/renovation process from ideas all the way through to launch. You will have the opportunity to interact regularly with many other functions including but not limited to product development, marketing, purchasing, and legal.

The primary focus of this position is to provide regulatory expertise to some of Frito-Lays most popular brands.

The position will involve work with a variety of R&D and cross-functional stakeholders, provide input on nutrition labeling, defining new claim territories and managing packaging timelines.

The position will require an excellent understanding and application of US Food and Drug Administration labeling regulations to assure the accuracy of ingredient statements, nutrition facts, allergen declarations and claims. As a Senior Regulatory Scientist, you must be able to think strategically as well as independently monitor, interpret and ensure compliance with US regulations today and into the future. Technical savvy and expertise with product specification and life-cycle management systems are critical to success in this detail-oriented compliance role. This role provides an excellent opportunity to expand existing regulatory expertise while honing technical skills working in the snack food category.
