RGDATA, the national representative association for 4,000 local and independent grocery stores across Ireland, has launched a new initiative for training its members and their staff in shops that are licensed to sell alcohol. The RRA (responsible retailing of alcohol) training programme, developed by alcohol.ie in conjunction with the Department of Health and Fáilte Ireland, is an interactive online programme for all staff working in shops, supermarkets, convenience stores, forecourts where alcohol is sold. It is designed to inform staff about their obligations under the RRAI Voluntary Code of Practice that was previously agreed by the mixed trading sector.

At an event to launch the initiative, Mary Kennedy, owner of alcohol.ie described the RRA programme as “designed to support the real needs of the industry, instilling confidence to make decisions and act decisively when the need arises.

“Customer safety, protection of minors and moderate consumption of alcohol are key elements of responsible retailing, and its importance to our country’s health welfare is crucial.”
