Are you satisfied with your employer? How about those working under you? Taking the time to foster a positive and supportive workplace environment is more important than you may realize—businesses with strong corporate culture often see benefits ranging from increased productivity to stronger long-term success overall.

The food and drink industry is massive—Forbes places at least 1.7 million people working within the sector by January 2015—and the need for strong corporate culture is as important here as it is within any other sector. So which companies are delivering on that need? To find out, Forbes teamed up with statistics aggregator Statista to poll more than 20,000 employees across various sectors to find out their level of workplace satisfaction. The poll was simple and telling: on a scale of 1-10, how likely would an employee be to recommend their employer to a friend?

The following infographic highlights the companies that were the big winners in the world of food and beverage. Kraft came out on top, which is especially interesting—we’re curious to see if the company’s merger with H.J. Heinz will affect its standing in any way. Also included in the top three are Unilever and Altria Group Inc, the latter of which was once known as Phillip Morris Companies and owns several beverage brands like Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte and Chateau Ste. Michelle Wine Estates in addition to its many tobacco brands.

Check out the full infographic from Forbes and Statista to see who else made the grade.
