Every month, the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) releases its monthly report on job creation. Recently FoodandBeveragePeople.com released new statistics which show that “…the food and beverage industry remains a positive force in the job market, accounting for just over 19% of all job growth” in the month of August. If you’re a regular reader of Sip & Savor, this comes as no surprise as the food and beverage industry has consistently been a significant contributor to job creation.

The beverage industry alone has a direct economic impact of $141.22 billion, provides more than 233,000 jobs and helps support hundreds of thousands more that depend, in part, on beverage sales for their livelihood.
