Out of a record 777 food and drink transactions covered by the bevblog.net mergers and acquisitions database for 2018, 28 involved sums over $1,000 million. This was below the 33 recorded in 2017, but higher than the numbers for 2015 and 2016.

The $104 billion combined value of the top 10 was 36% higher than the $77 billion for the top 10 of 2017, but 39% lower than the $171 billion for the top 10 of 2016 and little more than a quarter of the $365 billion for the top 10 of 2015.

The 28 over $1 billion totalled $141 billion, compared with $115 billion for the 33 over $1 billion in 2017, $190 billion for the 22 over $1 billion in 2016 and $403 billion for the 27 over $1 billion in 2015.
