When it comes to jobs, our member companies are doing their part to provide employment opportunities in communities throughout the nation. Our industry has a direct economic impact of more than $141 billion, provides more than 233,000 good-paying jobs and helps to support hundreds of thousands more that depend, in part, on beverage sales for their livelihoods. Our member companies also provide significant tax revenues that impact communities nationwide – more than $14 billion at the state level and $22.7 billion at the federal level.
Moreover, America’s beverage industry generously contributes more than $765 million to charitable causes across the nation, impacting communities from coast to coast.
Our member companies are committed to the communities in which they work and live – and we at ABA are proud to be a part of this great American industry.
