Aldi Ireland To Ban Sale Of Energy Drinks To Under 16s

Aldi Ireland has announced today (19 January) that it will restrict the sale of high-caffeine energy drinks to anyone under 16 years of age.

In a statement, the discount retailer said that customers buying soft drinks containing more than 150mg of caffeine per litre will be asked to prove their age from 1 March 2018 in all of Aldi's 130 Irish stores.

“We are introducing this age restriction in response to growing concern about the consumption of energy drinks among young people.” Finbar McCarthy, Group Buying Director at Aldi Ireland, said.
