Responsible Consumption

As Estonia’s leading beverage manufacturer, A. Le Coq champions the informed and responsible consumption of alcohol. In accordance with the code of ethics of Estonian brewers and our company’s values, we take a responsible approach in our everyday operations and marketing communication – we truly believe that sensible consumption of alcohol prevents damage, loss and suffering in society caused by excessive drinking. We expect and demand the same from our partners.

What is responsible consumption?

The National Institute for Health Development has established risk thresholds for the consumption of alcohol: a maximum of four units per day for men and two units per day for women. One unit is equal to 10 g of pure alcohol. The number of units of alcohol in a beverage depends on the strength of the alcohol and the size of the glass or bottle. For example, 0.5 litres of light beer contains around two units of alcohol. Both men and women should observe at least three alcohol-free days each week.
