FoodDrinkEurope welcomes 'fat tax' abolition16 November 2012
FoodDrinkEurope has welcomed the latest development in Denmark following the announcement made earlier in the month to abolish the ‘Fat Tax’ introduced in the country in October 2011, and to revoke plans to introduce a ‘Sugar Tax’.
International organisations, such as the WHO, as well as the European Commission, acknowledge that nutrition education, which encourages consumers to have a balanced diet and lead a healthy lifestyle, is essential if we want to tackle the complex issue of obesity, said FoodDrinkEurope. This necessitates collaborative actions where governments work together with other stakeholders – public health organisations, civil society representatives and industry – with each assuming its respective role, in order to help create systemic behavioural change among consumers.
