As part of its operation of the Code of Practice, the Portman Group offers a free, fast and confidential Advisory Service.
This service offers companies an opportunity to seek advice about the packaging of a drink that they are intending to launch or any promotional material or activity that they are about to undertake. The Advisory Service will say whether, in its opinion, the proposed product or activity raises a potential problem under the Code so that the company can take appropriate action in advance.
Requests for advice should include visuals of the product and/or full details of the promotional activity. Advice is normally given within two working days of the request being received. They can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 7290 1460.
Full details of the terms and conditions under which advice is given can be found in section 6 of the Code.
