Scope of the inquiry

The Science and Technology Committee launches an inquiry into the consumption of energy drinks.

A study conducted by the Centre for Translational Research in Public Health has found that young people in the UK consume more energy drinks than those in other European countries, with consumption in the UK increasing by 185% between 2006 and 2015. A report by the European Food Safety Authority found that 68% of those aged 10-18, and 18% of those aged 3-10, were consumers of energy drinks.
