Eurocare welcomes the requirement for allergen labelling in wine for milk, egg and sulphites

Regulation 579/2012[i] has finally put an end to derogations that the wine sector has been successfully obtaining over the last years. The producers are required to state the presence in the final product of: (i) eggs and egg based products, (ii) sulphites/ sulphites, (iii) milk and milk based products. This listing might be accompanied by pictograms which could improve the readability of the information provided to consumers.

However, there is no specification on the size of the pictograms. ’We expect the wine industry to step up and show their commitment to inform and protect consumers, by making the information clearly visible and readable on the label’ said Mariann Skar, Eurocare Secretary General.

Government, producers, law enforcement, sellers and parents all have a role to play in bringing about a better drinking culture in this country, writes Tim Salt from the alcohol industry.
Another year, another silly season. Over the past few weeks we have seen the inevitable reports of people getting drunk and behaving badly. During schoolies week it was images of teenagers celebrating the end of school by drinking too much. And on the eve of the new year, we will no doubt see more reports of people drinking to excess and creating a headache for society. Inevitably, anti-alcohol groups have responded as they always do – by attacking the product rather than the behaviour. … (Source: Alcohol Reports, 12/26/10) theage.com.au, 12/26/10 Comment: The alcohol industry complaints that its self regulation doesn’t work. It cannot understand that better prevention measures are needed, e.g. the proposals of the World Health Organization’s global alcohol strategy. We have now the result of decades of alcohol marketing.
