Work on this proposal was temporarily paused while FSANZ undertook preliminary work on energy labelling of alcoholic beverages.
In April 2022, work on P1049 was recommenced to align with work on Proposal P1059 Energy labelling on alcoholic beverages and allow us to consider alignment of any potential alcohol labelling changes. Public consultation on P1049 is now anticipated in late 2022.
