Please list the actions that your company has undertaken in the last reporting year (e.g. product reformulation, serving size control, new product development, supportive promotional or marketing activity) and where possible provide data to indicate the scale of the activity.
The update provides you with an opportunity to describe the progress you have made on delivering against this pledge and the changes you have implemented in order to deliver this commitment. You may wish to indicate if your delivery plans for this pledge had to be modified and whether there were any unintended consequences that arose from your delivery of the pledge.

This information will then be used for internal monitoring and evaluation only and details will not be published without the company's permission.

Recently FirstCape introduced a further 4 sparkling products to its 5.5% alcohol wines. We now have 12 products in our lower alcohol range. Our Light Sparkling wines only have 4.1 units per bottle compared to 9 units in a standard sparkling bottle. In the last year we have sold 206,896 cases of lower alcohol wines all at 5.5%, which would have had a huge impact on unit consumption.
