America's non-alcoholic beverage companies play an important role in the American economy. Providing jobs, paying significant tax dollars to state and federal governments and contributing to charitable causes are just a few examples of how we give back. In fact, a recently released study shows how extensive the role of the food and agriculture sectors is in fueling the nation.

Providing more that 43 million jobs and with a direct economic impact of close to $7 billion, together the food and agriculture industries account for roughly one-fifth of the country's economic activity. From America's farms and ranches, to food scientists, grocers, truck-drivers and restaurants everywhere, the food and agriculture industries play an absolutely vital role in growing the nation's economy.

America's beverage companies are proud to be a part of the food and agriculture community and of the opportunities we bring to our hometowns. We care deeply about the communities where we live, work and play. We are American companies with American workers making American products in Americas hometowns.
