Be Sugar-Tax Ready – A Simple Overview
News | 7th March 2018
Why is the sugar tax being introduced?
The Department of Health proposed a tax on sugar-sweetened drinks to help tackle growing levels of obesity in Ireland. It was confirmed in the budget last October that this tax will be introduced in April 2018. It is hoped the tax will encourage people to choose healthier drinks more often, and encourage manufacturers to reformulate by reducing added sugar and delivering healthier products.
