Please join us on January 27th for the 2016 Virginia Beverage Association Annual Meeting and “Day on the Hill” to meet with legislators and to discuss issues important to the beverage industry (photos below). We are also pleased to welcome Attorney General of Virginia Mark Herring as our Keynote Speaker.
This annual event always serves as a meaningful way for our industry to interact with members of the General Assembly by allowing us to make a strong impression on the many ways we contribute to the overall economy and our respective communities in the Commonwealth of Virginia by highlighting:
- Our 4,100 employees totaling $278 million in annual salaries and $186 million in taxes paid to the Commonwealth.
- Continued proactive efforts towards fostering and promoting environmental stewardship through our water usage and recycling programs.
- Participation in promoting School Beverage Guideline in local schools to help foster healthy food choices for today’s youth and to help combat childhood obesity.
- Our commitment to be “clear on calories”, so that our customers can make informed decisions regarding their nutrition and brand choices.
