Head of Unwasted
Jeroen Heslenfeld has been with PepsiCo for over four years. As Head of Unwasted he is responsible for scaling Unwasted, by building a new business model and brand to sell obsolete products of PepsiCo. His scope includes strategy, marketing, supply chain, operations, finance and P&L. Before joining PepsiCo, Jeroen held various functions at De Mandemakers Groep, in which he enrolled online marketing and eCommerce strategies in a scalable, agile and cost-efficient way.
What was originally pitched as a “D2C party box” during an internal competition at PepsiCo eventually became the sustainability Unwasted Project. The core idea behind the project is to reduce the number of obsolete products, whilst generating valuable insights and building future eCommerce capabilities.. PepsiCo chose to launch Unwasted as a D2C initiative: selling surplus products directly to the end consumer.
