WiseGuyReports published new report, titled “The Implications of Introducing a Sugar Tax”.

"The Implications of Introducing a Sugar Tax Make an Inquiry about this news" explores the likely effects of sugar taxes on consumer prices and behavior. 

The introduction of a sugar tax would hit lower-income groups harder, but this would not guarantee a reduction in sugar consumption as this group is likely to trade down to lower-price goods. On the other hand, the tax would raise awareness among consumers bringing the high sugar content of soft drinks into the spotlight.

This could stimulate new innovations in product reformulation, positioning and packaging sizes.
