RALEIGH, NC (FOX Carolina) -

A North Carolina soft drink is being featured at a White House effort to focus on products made in the U.S.A.

Multiple media organizations report representatives of Salisbury-based Cheerwine will join President Donald Trump and manufacturers from each state on Monday. The White House effort seeks to encourage other companies to manufacture their products in the United States.

Cherry-flavored Cheerwine marks its 100th anniversary this year and the company is owned by the founder's great-grandsons.

The soda often is used in southern recipes such as barbecued chicken.
