EP debates EU alcohol labeling rules

Alcoholic beverages in the EU could soon be subject to the same regulatory labeling regime as other foodstuffs. Some members of the European Parliament (MEPs) are calling for new regulations and urging the European Commission to legislate the sector. In the quest to safeguard consumer protection an health, MEPs are calling for lists of ingredients – including calories and energy – which could inform current nutrition debates on overweight and obesity issues. According to a recent study, nutrition labeling on alcohols would reduce consumption. This could have implications for future export and import of alcohol products within the EU.
