Minimum Unit Pricing (MUP) came into effect in Scotland on 1st May 2018, and mandates that drinks containing alcohol must have a minimum sales price of £0.50- per-unit of alcohol. This study is one of several commissioned by NHS Health Scotland (now part of Public Health Scotland) to evaluate the implementation and impacts of alcohol minimum unit pricing in Scotland through the Monitoring and Evaluating Scotland’s Alcohol Strategy (MESAS) programme of studies. The MUP studies are organised around four themes: (1) implementation and compliance; (2) the alcoholic drinks industry; (3) alcohol consumption; (4) and health and social harms. This study falls under the alcohol alcoholic drinks industry theme, although our findings also add to the evidence around implementation and compliance.
