When a consumer drinks alcohol, it is almost 100% certain that they do not know what they are drinking, unless they are determined enough to search on the company’s website.
In 2011 the European institutions passed legislation that requires food and soft drinks including fruit juice and milk to label nutritional information and ingredients.
However, alcoholic beverages were exempted from this obligation.
It is really perplexing that European decision makers refused consumers their right to know what is in their drinks by excluding alcoholic drinks from this legislation.
The European Commission is obliged to produce a report on the matter by December this year (2014).
This event will look at the rational of alcohol labelling, the link between alcohol and healthy diet and recent developments in area of alcohol labelling.
Come and join us to find out what is not on the alcohol bottle
