news latest eu-health-chief-not-satisfied-with-industry-s-alcohol-labelling-proposal
EurActiv reports that EU Health Commissioner Vytenis Andriukaitis is not pleased with the “inconsistent” proposal recently submitted by the alcohol industry on labelling and insisted that European consumers should be presented the full information of the products they purchase.
“Our path is clear and we are doing the legal assessment [of the
proposal]. At first sight, I am not satisfied with the proposal because
it is not consistent and does not address some issues related to
information for consumers: consumers should be fully informed.
But we need to see what our lawyers will say first,” Andriukaitis told EURACTIV.com in an exclusive statement.
