Mandatory Pregnancy Labelling On Alcohol

PHAIWA welcomes the decision of the Australia and New Zealand Ministerial Forum on Food Regulation, taken on the 11 October 2018, to enforce mandatory labels to warn about the risk of drinking alcohol during pregnancy, in a bid to reduce harm to unborn babies and newborns. The new mandatory labels will ensure that all alcohol producers must comply with the system, and will give consumers a more effective warning of the risks of drinking alcohol. This is an important step in preventing FASD.
