Welcome to our annual top 50 food packaging companies cover story. As explained further in the methodology box that correlates with the chart to right, Food and Beverage Packaging has ranked the top 50 food companies based on 2013 total revenues. As in the past, we organize the list in ranking order (starting with number one) by revenue in billions. We also highlight chief packaging officer of the company and a list of key brands. We have broken out revenue from beverage and other non-food product sales, when possible, so that we only include revenue from packaged food sales.
