Did you check in with us yesterday and read about how the beverage industry played an important part in job growth last month? Did you also know that the non-alcoholic beverage industry plays an important role in the U.S economy all year, every year?

Our industry has a direct economic impact of $141.22 billion, provides more than 233,000 jobs and helps to support hundreds of thousands more that depend, in part, on beverage sales for their livelihoods.  Beverage companies and their employees, and the firms and employees indirectly employed by the industry, provide significant tax revenues – more than $14 billion at the state level and $22.7 billion at the federal level – and contribute more than $765 million to charitable causes in communities across the nation.
