In November 2016 we launched a public survey, which found high levels of support for including unit information on alcohol products. People have a right to information about the content of products that they consume; however, units are not often considered easy to understand. Labels could help people understand the relative strength of different drinks by making clear comparisons between alcohol units.
The examples below show the units of alcohol in different drinks as a proportion of the most recent weekly drinking guidelines from the UK Chief Medical Officers (14 units per week for men and women). Tell us what you think about ways to make units easier to understand by voting or leaving your comments.
