American Beverage Association

American Beverage Association The American Beverage Association is the national voice for the non-alcoholic refreshment beverage industry.
The non-alcoholic beverage industry is comprised of some of the most innovative and well-respected companies in the world. Our presence is felt in every corner of every community in America – from our products in the aisles of neighborhood stores, to our local delivery drivers who distribute them, to our support of local community initiatives and more. Our industry is an important part of America’s economy. With a direct economic impact of $166.5 billion, we provide more than 240,,000 good-paying jobs across our country – and help to support hundreds of thousands more that depend, in part, on beverage sales for their livelihood. We’re an industry that takes extraordinary steps to be part of the solution, whether it’s helping meet a community need, doing our part to address childhood obesity or making our calories more clear for consumers.
