Sale of energy drinks to minors will be banned
On 28 August 2023, an amendment to the Public Health Act was published, including an important change impacting the food industry. After lengthy debate, it was decided to impose an absolute ban on the sale of energy drinks to minors. Ultimately, proposed advertising restrictions were dropped, but new labelling requirements for beverages containing caffeine or taurine remain. Starting 1 January 2024, the new regulation will force manufacturers and vendors to adjust their internal procedures for marketing energy drinks in Poland.
