State Alcohol Monopoly

Challenging the Alcohol Legislation

The Swedish Board of Agriculture has come forward with an unusual proposal. In order to boost the economy in remote areas with little infrastructure, farmers should be allowed to sell beer, wine or whatever alcoholic product they produce.

But such a step would mean a huge reform of Swedish alcohol policy. If Sweden’s parliament, the Riksdag, passes the bill, this would most likely herald the end of the country’s traditional state monopoly on alcohol.
