In 2012, PepsiCo Russia became the first partner of the newly founded Russian Foodbank and since then has donated more than 25,000 tons of nutritious products through the Food for Good Russia (FFG Russia) program.

In 2016, Quaker Qrece was born in Mexico in partnership with Un Kilo de Ayuda, a clinically proven intervention model to help children between 2 and 5 years old overcome mild and moderate malnourishment.

Quaker 3 Minutos is an affordable and practical option for all Mexican families looking for nutritious choices at breakfast time. In 2021, the brand announced a new formula, to help Mexican consumers boost their immune system.

The combination of these vitamins and minerals with the Quaker Oats super grain, plus a minimum of 150 minutes a week of physical activity, adequate rest, overall good nutrition and stress management, can help maintain a strong immune system.
