The resolution has also called for a new EU Alcohol Strategy focusing on alcohol consumption by minors and EU-wide labelling to discourage drink driving and drinking while pregnant.
The EC has to compile a report on the issue and then decide whether to take action on the labelling proposals.
British Beer & Pub Association (BBPA) chief executive Brigid Simmonds said: “We are not against making it mandatory but the important thing for us is that there is a consistent approach across all alcoholic drinks.”
The BBPA has suggested that companies should be given an alternative option of placing calorie information online. Currently alcohol labels already are legally obliged to show ABV, chief medical officer guidance and pregnancy warnings.
Simmonds also called for time to implement any such labelling changes to allow businesses time to prepare.
