About Us

The Illinois Beverage Association (IBA) represents the bottlers, distributors and employees of the soft drink industry in Illinois. Within the context of the public interest, we seek to protect and to advance the interests of the industry responsibly. We employ thousands of individuals, contribute millions of dollars to local state and federal taxes and make significant charitable contributions. Additionally, we partner with local schools to provide additional funding for services and equipment not otherwise funded.

Our products include bottled waters, teas, juices and carbonated and non-carbonated soft drinks. We comply with all state and federal laws, maintain a very active recycling effort and participate in many activities to make Illinois a better place to work, to invest and to enjoy a healthy and prosperous life for everyone.

The Illinois Beverage Association is managed by Resolute Consulting, a Chicago-based public affairs firm.
