Food Processing generates annual lists of the top 100 food and beverage companies in the United States and Canada. You can find lists dating back to 2010 by clicking on each year's tab. These lists of the top food and beverage companies are one of a kind; nowhere else can you sort both food and beverage manufacturers by sales, rank or income all in one place.

Our 42nd annual Top 100© list (2017) ranks food and beverage processors based on their sales of value-added, consumer-ready goods that were processed in U.S. and Canadian facilities. Read the analysis in our article: Top 100 Food and Beverage Companies for 2017: A Mixed Bag of Results. You can also download your own poster-sized copy of the chart. This year's edition includes a new feature which we hope you enjoy.

To see the merger and acquisition activity that contributed to the final data for 2017's list, read the article: 2016 Showed Near-Record Year for Merger & Acquisition Activity.
