Skar Alcohol Occasional online

Mariann Skar, Secretary General of Eurocare (The European Alcohol Policy Alliance), spoke at SHAAP's 2015/16 Alcohol Occasional seminar series about alcohol labelling in Europe. In her talk, Skar provided a brief overview of Eurocare and outlined some of the challenges facing the alcohol policy community in Europe with regards to product labelling. Across Europe, there are high levels of public support for nutritional information on product labels and the current legislative environment offers an opportunity to disseminate health information to consumers. Going forward, there remains important questions about how consumers respond to health labelling and crucially, how public health advocates counteract the effects of high levels of spending on advertising by the alcohol industry - a summary of her presentation's key points can be found here.
