Why invest in Walkers?

Walkers has been creating crisps since it launched its Cheese and Onion flavour in 1954. It’s since become a staple in supermarket meal deals. The company took advantage of restaurant closures across the UK during the coronavirus pandemic and created a range of restaurant inspired flavours for its crisps, including Nando's (Peri Peri chicken), PizzaExpress (American Hot), YO! Sushi (Katsu Curry), Gourmet Burger Kitchen (Classic Cheeseburger) and Las Iguanas (Chilli Con Carne). The crisps offered vouchers to use once the corresponding restaurants reopened.

PepsiCo operates all over the world and its 23 brands each earn more than $1 billion (£0.73 billion) in annual revenue. That’s even with its friendly rivalry with CocaCola.
