Diageo's 'Stop Out of Control Drinking' Campaign in Ireland: An Analysis
It has been argued that the alcohol industry uses corporate social responsibility activities to influence policy and undermine public health, and that every opportunity should be taken to scrutinise such activities. This study analyses a controversial Diageo-funded ‘responsible drinking’ campaign (“Stop out of Control Drinking”, or SOOCD) in Ireland. The study aims to identify how the campaign and its advisory board members frame and define (i) alcohol-related harms, and their causes, and (ii) possible solutions.

2019 Annual Price Survey
The Market review and Price survey was carried out in two Dublin locations: city centre and north county; one regional city: Sligo, and one town: Longford, by Alcohol Action Ireland between 24 -26 July 2019.
A range of convenience stores and supermarkets were surveyed: Aldi, Centra, Dunnes, Lidl, Spar, Supervalu and Tesco.
As well as the retail price, the survey shows the price per standard drink (10 grams of alcohol) contained in the product, to illustrate how much it costs for a woman and man to reach a low-risk drinking guideline limit, if purchasing the cheapest alcohol products for sale in the off-trade.
