America’s beverage companies are part of the fabric of America and play an important role in our nation’s economy. Our industry provides more than 265,000 good-paying, family-supporting jobs and helps to support hundreds of thousands more that depend, in part, on beverage sales for their livelihoods. Our direct impact to our nation’s economic engine is more than $174 billion, and we provide significant tax revenues—more than $15 billion at the state level and more than $24 billion at the federal level. Supporting our communities in real and meaningful ways matters deeply to us. That’s why our beverage companies and their employees contribute $2.4 billion to charitable causes in communities across the nation.
