Notice from Morrisons about Energy Drinks

We have received this notice from Morrisons Community Champion:

Morrisons supermarket in Aldershot are introducing restrictions on the sale of high-caffeine energy drinks. They have listened to parents and teachers who have raised concerns about the potential adverse impact of these drinks on children’s behaviour.

From Monday 5th March, they will ask customers buying high-caffeine energy drinks to prove they are over 16 years of age. These restrictions will apply in store and online sales and will be implemented through their well-established ‘Challenge 25’ age restricted controls. This means that any customer who looks under the age of 25 will be asked for proof of age when attempting to purchase these products.
