The Australian Beverages Council Ltd (ABCL) is the peak body representing the non-alcoholic beverage industry. Our Membership is comprised of small, medium-sized and large companies. Collectively these companies produce over 95% of the industry’s volume.

Our Members make a substantial $7+ billion contribution to the Australian economy each year and nationally our Members employ over 46,000 people and pay over $1.2 billion in taxes along the industry supply chain. We strive to advance the industry as a whole, as well as successfully represent the range of drinks produced by our Members. These include carbonated regular and diet soft drinks, energy drinks, sports drinks, bottled and packaged waters, fruit and vegetable juices, fruit drinks, cordials, iced teas, ready-to-drink coffees, flavoured milk and flavoured plant milk.

The unified voice of the Australian Beverages Council offers our Members a presence beyond individual representation in order to promote fairness in the standards, regulations, and policies concerning non-alcoholic beverages.

We work with our Members to ensure that the industry and its various categories are able to grow in a free, fair and open market. We also provide a forum for our Members to converge and discuss current non-competitive issues of mutual interest, as well as providing a range of professional development opportunities for industry colleagues.
