About Jeffrey Nguyen
Jeffrey graduated in 2015 with a BS in Chemical Engineering. We both met at an Asian organization and found we had similar leadership interests so we became friends. He now works at Pepsico under the Supply Chain Associate program. In his spare time, he likes to dive in and help communities from volunteer work to supporting organizations and he’s all about taking action and making an impact.
The Gatorade Company, Inc. is an American manufacturer of sports-themed beverage and food products, built around its signature line of sports drinks. Gatorade is currently manufactured by PepsiCo and is distributed in over 80 countries. The beverage was first developed in 1965 by a team of researchers at the University of Florida, to replenish the combination of water,carbohydrates, and electrolytes that the school’s student-athletes lost in sweat during rigorous sport activities.
Originally produced and marketed by Stokely-Van Camp, the Gatorade brand was purchased by the Quaker Oats Company in 1987, which, in turn, was bought by PepsiCo in 2000. As of 2010, Gatorade is PepsiCo’s 4th-largest brand, on the basis of worldwide annual retail sales. Within the United States, Gatorade accounts for approximately 75 percent market share in the sports drink category.
