Wine in Moderation - Art de Vivre

Wine is integral to European life and culture and is enjoyed by millions around Europe and the world. While for the majority of consumers' wine products represent a pleasurable beverage enjoyed in moderation and healthy lifestyle compatible, a minority misuse alcoholic beverages in ways that are damaging to themselves and that can harm others around them.
The "Wine in Moderation- Art de Vivre" programme (thereafter "WIM") represents the European wine sector's contribution to tackle these problems.
The Programme works to promote responsibility and moderation in consumption as a cultural / social norm, with a view to preventing and reducing alcohol abuse and related harm. Its goal is to mobilize the wine sector to educate wine consumer, helping them to make responsible decisions about drinking, in cooperation with the competent authorities and other stakeholders. At the same time, we want to preserve the cultural, environmental and economic place of wine in European society.
The Programme will be implemented by:
a.Disseminating a common "moderation" message using targeted communication materials for use with people of all ages and for both professionals and consumers.
b."Arts de vivre" (life-skills) education programmes targeted at industry and consumers to encourage cultural change and make moderation fashionable.
c.A Wine Information Council (WIC), which will share "best-practice", made available all relevant scientific information on health, social and cultural aspects of wine drinking.
d.Promoting specific "Wine Communication Standards" (WCS) for commercial communications, building on existing national self-regulation codes.

Provision of nutritional and ingredients information to consumers on label for all HEINEKEN beers in Europe

We are an active advocate of increased transparency to consumers and a lot of our brands already carry nutritional information and ingredients declarations on label. We have now committed to provide ingredients and nutrition information on pack for all our beer brands in the EU. We will include ingredients and energy values (kcal) per 100ml. Furthermore, we will include a link on pack referring to a website where consumers can obtain further information on fat, sugars, protein and salt. This is how the EU has regulated the information for other products and beverages and we believe this is the right approach and allow consumers to make fair comparisons between different beverages. As Europe's largest brewer, we have many beer brands sold in many markets but our aim is to complete the implementation of this plan by end 2016. In addition, we fully support the pledge of the Brewers of Europe, of which we are an active member, to provide more information on ingredients and nutrition to all beer consumers in a standardised way.
