The Irish Beverage Council (IBC) is the dedicated body representing Ireland’s non-alcoholic beverage industry. Uniting brand owners, producers, distributors and marketers of still and carbonated soft drinks, sports and energy drinks, juices and bottled waters in both Ireland and Northern Ireland, the IBC is a unit of Food Drink Ireland and one of the family of sectoral associations within Ibec.

Our members are part of the fabric of Ireland’s economy, proudly making a significant contribution throughout the supply chain – from agriculture to manufacturing, to packing, through to transport and logistics, retail, hospitality and tourism. The industry employs over 3,500 people directly, supports another 3,000 jobs and generates an annual economic value of some €1.5 billion.

The IBC represents the interests of the industry at local, national and international level and is an active member of UNESDA – Soft Drinks Europe and NMWE – Natural Mineral Waters Europe.
