A Dividend Aristocrat almost two times over is being added to the Best Dividend Stocks list as of today. This global food giant has over $8 billion in free cash flow and more than 5% organic revenue growth from 2014 to 2015. It has more than 9% core constant currency EPS growth, achieved a billion dollars in productivity savings and returned a whopping $9 billion to shareholders through share repurchases and dividends.

This company has been filling our snack and beverage needs for more than 100 years. It’s recession resistant and did not cut its dividend during the past two recessions. The company cannot get more blue chip in nature. The firm continues to expand into new emerging markets such as China and South Africa with its core offerings, as well as some well-timed M&A. Meanwhile, in the developed world, new healthy beverages and natural snack options have been added.

To summarize, here are 4 reasons why you should own this stock:

  • Demand for their product stays constant no matter what the economy is doing.
