The Government committed to consult on whether mandatory calorie labelling should be introduced on all prepacked alcohol, as well as alcoholic drinks sold in the out of home sector, for alcohol products over 1.2% ABV. We will also seek views on whether the provision of the United Kingdom Chief Medical Officers’ low risk drinking guidelines and a drink driving warning should be mandatory or continue on a voluntary basis.
