The WHO European Region has the highest levels of per capita alcohol consumption worldwide, with 10% of all deaths attributable to alcohol. Alcohol labelling, a WHOrecommended practice, is in line with principles of consumer protection and safety through providing consumers with information about alcohol risks. To date, there is no overview on the presence of mandatory or voluntary nutritional value, ingredients listing and health information labelling on alcoholic beverages in the Region, nor the factors influencing labelling practice.

This report reviews the evidence on existing practices for nutritional and health information labelling on alcoholic products to address the question: “What is the current alcohol labelling practice in the WHO European Region and what are barriers and facilitators to development and implementation of alcohol labelling policy?”
