Mild Alcoholic Beverages to Grocery Stores

The sales of mild wines in grocery stores would improve customer service and have a positive impact on the productivity and competitiveness of the Finnish grocery trade. Updating the rules that regulate the Finnish licensed sales of alcohol would also safeguard a comprehensive neighbourhood store network to meet the ageing population's needs 

The large-scale grocery stores that currently have a state monopoly Alko store operating in the same premises, have increased their sales by 10-15 %, while the small neighbourhood stores do not have access to this purchasing power.
