A Message From Our Executive Director
March 4 was an eternity ago. Although COVID 19 storm clouds were already gathering, our OhioBev Legislative Day dawned cool and bright. Over 100 members from around Ohio met with legislators, briefing them on industry leadership initiatives in calorie management and plastics recycling. We also explained our critical need for more CDL drivers to deliver our products.

Whenever we face a crisis as Americans, we pull together. Neighbors help neighbors, friends reach out to friends, and families get closer. It’s also a time when ordinary folks put aside their fears to punch that clock every day so the rest of us get what we need to make it through the week. Here in Ohio you see them everywhere. In Columbus, truckers from Keurig Dr Pepper on Stelzer Rd., plant workers at G&J Pepsi on Gibbard Ave. and merchandisers from Coca-Cola Consolidated on Groves Rd. are on the job night and day to get us our groceries. Stock workers are hustling to put items on grocery shelves; cashiers, counter people, managers and assistant managers are working double-time. Some of these folks never get much notice, but they are critical to helping us maintain a sense of normalcy while our medical professionals and first responders work the front lines. The Ohio Beverage Association salutes these men and women in Franklin County and throughout Ohio who show up to work every so we can have the foods and beverages we want for our families. Let’s all try and give a “thank you” to one of these folks next time we see them.
