DrinkWise Australia has started rolling out labelling on its members' alcohol products in the country, highlighting responsible drinking to consumers in the country.

The organisation has confirmed today (12 July) that four messages will be available to its producer members to “adopt and integrate” with alcohol product labelling. Among the companies set to run the new labels are Brown-Forman, Diageo, Beam Global Spirits & Wine, Carlton & United Breweries and Accolade Wines.

Consumers will be encouraged to visit the DrinkWise website, with three other labels (pictured right) available to the producers.

“Providing messages which prompt consumers to think about their drinking, and supporting those messages with ongoing education activities and campaigns, will help support the community in making informed decisions about their approach to drinking alcohol.,” said the chair of DrinkWise Australia's board, the Hon Trish Worth.

The organisation said it “will monitor the roll-out of the … labels”, and “will conduct regular community attitude evaluations to assess their impact”.
