Gfk report 2016

This follow-up study builds upon a previous consumer survey done in 2014 in 6 European countries and released in March 2015. It specifically examines consumers’ call for receiving the same ingredients and nutrition information for all alcoholic beverages as currently provided on all other food and drink products, the interest in the ingredients information, the calorie information and the full nutrition information on alcoholic beverages as well as the different information sources that consumers would like to use to access this information. GfK Belgium conducted the follow-up online survey in nine different European Union countries in April 2016. The nine countries were selected as representative of the European Union and its different regions, ensuring a balanced geographical spread. These nine EU countries were Germany, Poland, Denmark, the Netherlands, Spain, the United Kingdom, Italy, France and Romania. In total, they account for approximately 78% of the total European population2 and about a third of all EU Member States.
