UK: Big Alcohol Earns £11bn From Higher Risk Alcohol Use Yearly, Government Action Needed

Posted on November 22, 2023 in Political interference, Europe, Europe

43.4% of all revenue the alcohol industry earns in the UK comes from higher risk alcohol consumption – i.e. alcohol intake exceeding the government’s low-risk alcohol use guidelines of 14 units a week. The alcohol industry makes £11.2bn from this higher risk volume of alcohol intake.
This is one of the key findings from a new report by public health organisations and the economics consultancy Landman Economics. The figures prompted a coalition of health, medical and children rights organisations to demand more government action to protect the British people from “the irresponsible behaviour of health-harming industries”.
