Consultation target audience
Alcohol industry, healthcare professionals, heath education bodies, enforcement officers, charities, consumer groups and other interested stakeholders who may have an interest in the policy and legislation on food labelling. This consultation applies to Northern Ireland only. Similar consultations will be carried out in England, Scotland and Wales.
We welcome stakeholders' views on how best to continue to communicate information to the public about low alcohol products, so that adults can make informed choices when they purchase drinks, including alcohol.
This consultation provides interested parties with an opportunity to provide feedback on the proposals to use guidance rather than legislation, views on the current low alcohol descriptors and on whether to extend the range of descriptors to drinks above 1.2% ABV.
