Sugar intake taxes

Sugar intake tax has been introduced because governments are worried about the way people consume lots of sugar.

This excess consumption of sugar has an effect of causing diet related diseases such as diabetes, cancer and heart-diseases.

Governments around the world have proposed taxes on sugar consumption to reduce consumption.

“People aged under 30 years of age tend to be more price sensitive and have strong preferences for sugar than older age groups.” – VOX EU
