Laddawan Lertwasin, Senior Marketing Manager – Cola of PepsiCo Services Asia Limited said "Many Thai consumers are keen to order their meals through food delivery service, available right on their smart devices, and this is considered as a major shift in meal purchasing behaviors of Thai consumers. Popularity of food delivery service is grounded on convenience, variety, as well as promotions allowing consumers to earn more. 'Pepsi' catches this emerging trend and partner with 'GrabFood' which is one of fan-favorite food delivery applications to organize a 3-month co-campaign period under the theme of 'Delicious and Fun with Pepsi LIME Flavor' to reinforce image of Pepsi as a favorite brand of beverages of Thai consumers during meals and to directly reach new-gen consumers through fun, fizzy, and amazing food delivery experiences.

Food delivery applications have significantly changed consumer behaviors according to a recent survey by Kasikorn Research Center. 63 percent of the sample group said food delivery applications yield some certain effects to their consumption behaviors particularly food ordering as they tend to order them by using these applications. Up to 88 percent of the sample group said they order food and drinks from food delivery applications based on promotions and offers.[1]

Chantsuda Thananitayaudom, Marketing Head of Grab Thailand further explained "Dining is a crucial foundation of Thai society and culture as it is an activity can bring happiness in everyday life. With this belief, GrabFood would like to quickly and efficiently delivery happiness to Thais and we need to constantly maintain our reputation as a food delivery service with an array of finest food and beverages partners to ensure we can answer to sophisticated needs of customers. This partnership with 'Pepsi' which carries an image among Thais as a cola drinks brand deeply associated with meals is a pleasing opportunity for GrabFood. We are certain campaigns we are going to present throughout this 3-month period under this partnership will be able to fulfill demands of consumers and generate experiences of deliciousness to consumers. GrabFood is determined to walk alongside our partners particularly Pepsi to meet all needs of today's consumers." This "Pepsi x GrabFood" co-campaign aims to simultaneously vivify carbonated soft drinks market and food delivery market in the last quarter of the year 2019 as it is going to utilize following campaigns, activities, and promotions that should wow consumers!
