The Top 100 beverage companies once again saw a change at its top spot. Based on 2015 financial sales, The Coca-Cola Co. reclaimed the No. 1 spot despite experiencing a sales decrease in comparison to 2014. The changing of the guard was a result of Anheuser-Busch InBev seeing dollar sales contraction of nearly $4 million. However, with its pending merger with SABMiller plc, the international brewer will be in prime position to reclaim the spot. Mergers and acquisitions had impacts on other areas throughout the Top 100 as Mondelez International and D.E. Master Blenders were removed from the list in place of Jacobs Douwe Egbers, the company formed from the coffee and tea brands of Mondelez and D.E. Once again the halfway point continued to rise as the No. 50 company, Trinchero Family Estates, had an estimated $667 million in sales. This is up from the $641 million last year’s No. 50 slot, National Beverage Corp., had in 2014.
