We all know that what we eat and drink has a direct impact on our health, but do we always make the right choices? With obesity and diseases such as Type 2 diabetes rising globally, governments are taking heed of the World Health Organization’s recommendation to legislate so that people make better informed – and hopefully healthier – choices. In May 2018, the UK Government introduced the Soft Drinks Industry Levy[1] (nicknamed the “sugar tax”) as part of its initiative to reduce childhood obesity.

The UK is by no means the first - other examples include France’s 2012 levy[2] which has since been extended to incorporate specific taxation for energy drinks, Mexico’s 2014 initiative which is reported to have directly contributed to a reduction in the country’s overall sugar consumption[3] and cities across the United States where soft drinks producers and public health bodies are going head-to-head with opposing marketing campaigns in a bid to influence public opinion[4].

This article sets out to explore the challenges and opportunities presented by sugar taxes and reflect on how, whether National Brand or Private Label, the impact is felt by us all.
