Responsible Retailing

Punch were named the inaugural winner of the Responsible Retailer of the Year Award at the Publican Awards in 2015 as sponsored by Drinkaware.

We have a dedicated Risk Management team, who ensure that our pubs operate responsibly and to the highest standards. We strive to ensure that our pubs are not operating irresponsible drinks promotions, or serving underage drinkers or those who are intoxicated.

The Punch Buying Club also has a section on Risk Management providing Publicans with a wide range of downloadable educational tools, advice and pub-friendly materials, which can also be used by pub managers and team members.

As supporters of Drinkaware, Punch does not condone the irresponsible promotion of alcohol, and has actively supported Drinkaware’s campaigns to help tackle binge drinking amongst 18 to 25-year-olds.

Responsible retailing forms a key part of our Publican training and we provide clear guidance on current legislation and best practice.
