In 2016 the Government announced an initiative to reduce the amount of added sugar in ALL soft drinks by introducing a special two tier levy on any product with a total sugar content of 5gm per 100ml attracting a tax of 18p per litre and 24p per litre on any product with a sugar content greater than 8 grams per 100ml.
Over the past few months we have been working with our producers to ensure that all of our own label products have been reformulated to ensure that they are all exempt from the tax, with a clear label on the pack indicating that they are “Sugar Tax Free”.
The only three products in our range that will attract this new tax are the full sugar variants of Coca Cola, Fanta and Pepsi Cola, the impact of which is detailed below:-
Increase Per Pack (Ex VAT)
Increase Per 1/2 Pint
If you wish to avoid incurring these added costs we do offer a number of alternatives including our own Cola Red, Coke Zero and Pepsi Max, all of which are sugar exempt.
