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 25% of all job growth.”

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.
