While some companies of alcohol have been providing full product information on the labeling, other such companies are also being asked to sign up with the public health responsibility deal released by the Government, as per a recent report.
“I am confident that we can reach the 80% target and now is the time for any drinks producers who haven’t yet signed up to be doing so quickly”, says the Public Health Responsibility Deal alcohol network’s chair Henry Ashworth.
It has been found by the Portman Group, which is a social responsibility body for all alcohol producers, that a total of 60% of alcohol labels contain adequate information about the product. The information may include its content, warnings related to pregnancy and drinking as well as guidelines. Though, the target has been set for 80% of the labeling to carry the information.
The majority of companies that have already signed up with the deal would be successfully achieving their deadline to introduce such labels set for December 2013, says the report.
Since the deal has been seeing progress and is to complete within next 18 months, Ashworth is found to be excited to see the changes with the introduction of new labels.
