America’s leading beverage companies all want the same thing — a strong, healthy America. That’s why the beverage industry, including The Coca-Cola Company, Keurig Dr Pepper and PepsiCo, are putting aside competitive differences and working together to support consumers’ efforts to balance what they eat, drink and do.

Our companies have introduced more options with zero sugar or less sugar than ever before. We are expanding our offering of smaller portion sizes and we voluntarily removed full-calorie sodas from schools. This unprecedented effort slashed beverage calories in schools by more than 90%. We’re placing clear calorie labels on the front of every bottle and can we sell and we’ve added calorie awareness messages on millions of vending machines and fountains. Today, half of all beverages purchased have zero sugar.

So, next time you go to your local grocer, take a look at the beverage aisle. You’ll see more low- and no-calorie beverages, many more flavored waters, and smaller package sizes such as mini-cans.

America’s beverage companies are committed to working together to achieve real change in people’s lives. Together, we will continue our work to educate consumers about our beverages so they can choose what’s best for themselves and their families.
