Beverage Digest is a privately owned publication covering the global non-alcoholic beverage industry. It is free of advertising, relying on subscription revenue. The newsletter was founded in 1982 and publishes 22 regular issues a year. The publisher is based in Bedford Hills, New York.[1]

Beverage Digest organizes conferences each year, where senior executives in the industry share their view on trends.[2] Beverage manufacturers often quote information from the annual Beverage Digest Fact Book and the twice-monthly Beverage Digest newsletter in their press releases.[3][4][5]

Although the newsletter is written for executives in the non-alcoholic drinks industry, its articles are often cited in publications with a broader audience. The New York Times has based a number of articles in part on information first published by Beverage Digest.[6][7][8] The Los Angeles Times also cites the magazine as an authority in various stories.[9][10][11] Forbes magazine, Yahoo! News and Reuters have also quoted the magazine.[12][13][14] USA Today often bases stories on information first published in Beverage Digest.[15]
