4. Indra Nooyi, chief executive of Pepsi Co.

Ms. Nooyi is head of Pepsi Co., the United States’ largest food company and one of the largest in the world – although Pepsi slipped to the third-ranked soft drink last year, behind US-based Coca Cola’s Coke and Diet Coke.

Pepsi Co. generated about $60 billion in revenue last year. Nooyi will more than double the company’s nutritional portfolio by 2020 and has devoted significant funding to developed a zero-calorie soda as good as the current product.

Last year, Nooyi was the world’s sixth most powerful woman.
