Food Processing's annual list of the top 100 food and beverage companies in the United States and Canada is the only list of its kind. Nowhere else can you sort manufacturers by sales, rank or income all in one place.

We try not to make this annual list into any kind of a competition, but there is a new leader atop our Top 100© chart of the largest food & beverage processors in the U.S. and Canada: PepsiCo.

This year 19 of the top 25 companies increased sales in 2010, and 18 of them also improved profitability. For the whole group, 63 of the 100 had higher sales in their latest fiscal year, and 40 also upped their net incomes.
