  Clearly, European consumers have the right to be fully informed on what they eat or drink. That is why the EU regulation on the provision of food information to consumers (FIC regulation) includes rules on listing ingredients and providing a nutrition declaration. This declaration contains information on seven nutritional values, such as calories, carbohydrates or sugar. This is mandatory for all foods, including alcoholic beverages.
 +
  However, there is an exemption for beverages containing more than 1.2 per cent alcohol per volume. Why? There seems to be no rational explanation nor any objective grounds which to explain why alcoholic beverages should be excluded from the listing. This situation has long been criticised by consumer advisors and health organisations and clearly needs to be addressed.

Nutrition information and ingredients listing on alcoholic beverages

  • October 2011:
 4.   Without prejudice to other Union provisions requiring a list of ingredients or a mandatory nutrition declaration, the particulars referred to in points (b) and (l) of Article 9(1) shall not be mandatory for beverages containing more than 1,2 % by volume of alcohol.
 REGULATION (EU) No 1169/2011 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 25 October 2011 on the provision of food information to consumers, Article 16
  • February 2017:
 Clearly, European consumers have the right to be fully informed on what they eat or drink. That is why the EU regulation on the provision of food information to consumers (FIC regulation) includes rules on listing ingredients and providing a nutrition declaration. This declaration contains information on seven nutritional values, such as calories, carbohydrates or sugar. This is mandatory for all foods, including alcoholic beverages.
 However, there is an exemption for beverages containing more than 1.2 per cent alcohol per volume. Why? There seems to be no rational explanation nor any objective grounds which to explain why alcoholic beverages should be excluded from the listing. This situation has long been criticised by consumer advisors and health organisations and clearly needs to be addressed.
