Breakfast with Refilwe Moloto
Is it time to introduce a minimum unit price on alcohol?

Is it time to introduce a minimum unit price on alcohol?

24 May 2019 11:00 AM

Pippa Hudson speaks to Prof Corne van Walbeek | professor in the School of Economics at UCT.

The average South African drinker consumed 30l of pure alcohol in 2016, according to a
report by the World Health organisation. That level of consumption per drinker places
the country in the sixth position globally.

A recent study for the Western Cape Government suggests increasing the excise tax on
the price of alcohol will do little to abate the heavy drinking. A 10% increase in the
price of alcohol will reduce alcohol consumption by about 4% among moderate
drinkers, but only by about 2%-2.5% among binge drinkers and 1.5%-2% among other
heavy drinkers.
