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.

Our 37th annual Top 100© list ranks food and beverage processors based on their sales of value-added, consumer-ready goods that were processed in U.S. and Canadian facilities. You won't find a comparable list anywhere else; you won't find many of these figures anywhere else, either.

Two things strike us as we examine this year's list of the 100 largest food & beverage processors in the U.S. and Canada:
• A couple of companies have become so big and unfocused that they will or already have split into two companies.
• 2011 was very tough year on some of these companies.

See who made it to the top of the 2012 list by visiting Top 100 Food and Beverage Companies for 2012: Splitting in Two.
