Turkey's parliament is reviewing a bill that would restrict alcohol sales, including banning purchases at educational, sports and health institutions. The bill has the beverage industry worried, including Diageo, owner of Turkey’s leading raki brand.

Turkey's conservative Justice and Development Party (AKP) last week proposed a bill introducing tougher restrictions on the sale of alcoholic beverages, banning many forms of advertising and obliging producers to include information about the risks of alcohol on packaging. Moreover, alcohol producers would no longer be allowed to sponsor cultural festivals.

If the bill is approved, educational, sports and health institutions would be prohibited from selling alcoholic drinks and online sales would also be banned.
