Today’s Group has launched an online calculator to help Scottish retailers with the Minimum Unit Pricing (MUP) laws coming into force on 1 May. 

The calculator automatically works out the legal price a retailer should sell alcohol at once they have entered information about ABV alongside unit and pack size. Under MUP, retailers cannot legally sell alcohol at less than 50p per unit. 

David Sands, who manages three Nisa stores in Scotland, said: “I’d prefer more help on MUP to be available to retailers and not just a calculator, such as point of sale or advice on explaining the legislation properly to customers.” 

The Today’s Group calculator comes as Scottish wholesaler Filshill released similar help at the start of this month.
