Minimum Unit Pricing
From 1 May 2018 retailers in Scotland must abide by the Alcohol (Minimum Pricing) Scotland Act 2012, and if they sell stock at non-MUP compliant prices may face fines or criminal charges.
MUP sets the minimum price one can pay for a unit of alcohol in Scotland at a minimum of 50p per unit. That means, for example, that a bottle of wine that contains ten units of alcohol can only be sold for a minimum of £5.00.
Year-on-Year data between 2018 and 2019 shows that the value of alcohols sales in convenience stores has risen by almost 10%, giving retailers a decent cash injection. With the awareness of the MUP, convenience retailers can make their beer, wine and spirits category shine, with plenty of opportunities for promotions and cross-selling.
