CEO of beer brewer Heineken Jean-François van Boxmeer had urged public health advocates and politicians to drop their “mistrust” of the global alcohol industry. So, I decided to give his arguments a look and asked myself: Should I start trusting Big Alcohol?
Here’s what I realised and came up with eventually…
IOGT International is the largest worldwide community of non-governmental organisations with a mission to independently enlighten people around the world on a lifestyle free from alcohol and other drugs.
The aim of IOGT International is the liberation of peoples of the world leading to a richer, freer and more rewarding life. As a means of attaining this aim, IOGT International promotes a lifestyle free of alcohol and other drugs.
