On 28 September 2023, the UK Department of Health and Social Care launched a public consultation on options for updating guidance for low-alcohol descriptors to increase the substitution of alcohol beverages with no/low alternatives “among people who drink above low risk levels.” The Department seeks views on whether to raise the threshold for describing a beverage as “alcohol free” from 0.05% to 0.5% alcohol by volume (ABV). It also seeks views on how to prevent children and young people from consuming these products, including the placement of warnings on products. And it seeks views on updating labelling guidelines for clearly displaying the alcohol percentage of these products.
