Policy

Our policy work is extensive, on a wide range of social, regulatory and technical issues. The wine and spirit industry is eager to play its part in the UK’s economic growth and we aim to shape an environment in which our sector can increase investment and remain competitive.

Regulation is one of the biggest barriers to growth any business can face. We strive to ensure that regulation -whether at an international, national or local level− does not threaten the sector’s viability. Another key part of building a sustainable future for the industry is fostering a culture in which our products are enjoyed responsibly. We are committed to working in partnership with the UK Government and other stakeholders to deliver this.
