The decision on when the law regarding the labelling of non-alcoholic drinks will come into force has still not been made. The issue of labelling non-alcoholic drinks was raised under the previous government, but the decision has been delayed several times in the face of objections from companies manufacturing the drinks. The Finance Minister Nodar Khaduri is still unable to provide a specific date for when a decision might be reached. However, in response to the enquiry by TV3, he states that the ministry is working together with the drinks manufacturers on reaching a solution with regards to the final decision. Mr. Khaduri says that the main issue is to prevent an increase in prices of drinks, and to avoid creating problems for businesses in the event of the labelling law coming into force. It is, however, equally important that unregistered produce does not come onto the market, according to the minister.

The labelling process will be carried out by the Swiss-Georgian company SICPA, who earlier won the tender. The Finance Minister states that the terms of the tendering process, which took place under the previous administration, are currently being examined, and it is therefore too early to reach a final decision on the issue.
