  1. Hello Patrick, We are an alcoholic popsicle company and I wanted to know, what the regulations are in this sector. Are there specific licences we would need to apply for and if so, what are they? Additionally, could we sell our products directly to supermarkets or do France have a three tier system like in the US? Thanks Question from Amara Obianuju on 08/11/2018
