Frito-Lay is the world's leading manufacturer of potato chips, with snack brands including Lay's, Fritos, Doritos, Walkers Crisps and Ruffles. The group holds the leading position in salty snacks in more than 30 countries, including all the biggest global markets. It is a global division of PepsiCo, forming a very suitable accompaniment to that group's international portfolio of soft drinks. In recent years, the group has taken several steps to improve the nutritional content of its products, and has also begun to broaden its range beyond potato, corn and tortilla chips into whole grain and even fruit and nut-based snacks.
