An analysis of ingredient and nutritional labeling for wine
General Manager, Strategy & International Affairs, Winemakers' Federation of Australia, PO Box 3891, Manuka, ACT 2603, Australia
Ingredient and nutritional information are currently mandatory in many countries for food labeling. Although wine is generally exempt from this requirement, regulatory changes are being actively considered by authorities across the globe. In this paper, a review of the current international requirements for the presentation of ingredient and nutritional information is undertaken. A literature review of studies into consumer's requirements and understanding of such information is undertaken and the potential costs to producers analysed. The study makes a number of conclusions on whether ingredient and nutritional labeling is appropriate for wine and investigates the effectiveness, usefulness and impact of such a labeling regime.
