It is against the law in Sweden to sell alcohol, tobacco, betting and lotteries to people under the age of 18.
Procedures for in-store checks
For this reason, Axfood applies an in-store check programme for products that carry an age restriction. The programme contains procedures for training staff and for carrying out age checks. Axfood requires all checkout staff to ask a customer for ID if he or she appears to them to be under 25 years old.
