Refreshing the Nation: Our Contribution to the UK Economy
Oxford Economics was commissioned by the British Soft Drinks Association to produce an economic impact analysis showing the extent of the industry’s impact on the wider economy.
This report looks at the impact of each aspect of the soft drinks industry—manufacturing, hospitality, retail, and head offices—at a national and regional level. The findings are presented in terms of jobs, Gross Value Added, and wages.
Total retail sales of soft drinks add £4.5 billion in value to the British economy, and supports over 91,000 jobs. The sale of soft drinks in hotels, restaurants, and bars contributes £2.3 billion to the UK economy and supports nearly 128,000 jobs.
