Could alcohol labels change in the future?
There have been numerous calls recently for alcohol brands to start including more information on their labels.
In fact, last year Alcohol Change UK joined over 30 organisations across the drug and alcohol sector in endorsing the Alcohol Charter. It’s a policy proposal that sets out effective and practical guidelines to help limit the damage to society caused by alcohol misuse.
Together, these organisations want labels to include, in a legible format, details such as:
- Current Chief Medical Officer (CMO) guidelines related to alcohol consumption
- Units per serving (or per container on spirit bottles) in line with CMO guidelines
- Nutritional information per serving (including calories)
- Full list of ingredients, with any allergens listed in bold
If such changes are enforced in the future, the majority of alcohol brands will need to rethink their labelling design. But rather than seeing this as a hindrance, brands might consider it an opportunity to help consumers make more informed decisions around alcohol and encourage them to drink responsibly.
