The Massachusetts Beverage Association represents the Commonwealth’s manufacturers and distributors of nonalcoholic beverages, from national brands to regional, family-owned labels. Our industry employs over 6,300 residents in the Commonwealth with a direct economic impact of $4 billion and pays nearly $500 million in wages annually. In addition, more than 21,000 workers in restaurants, grocery stores, convenience stores, movie theaters and more depend, in part, on beverage sales for their livelihoods.
Our members’ products reach across the Commonwealth through a vast network of local customers and partners touching virtually every community from the Berkshires to Provincetown. Together, they bring hundreds of brands, flavors and packages to the market, including regular, low and no-calorie soft drinks, bottled water and seltzers, 100% juice and juice drinks, sports drinks, energy drinks and ready-to-drink teas and coffees.
We are grateful for these partnerships and we strive to provide smart, efficient practices that are good for our partners, the economy and the environment.
