French soft drinks tax

This article was originally published in Foodnews

The tax of just one euro cent per can of drink is expected to raise EUR120 million (USD154 million), which suggests that the tax is less aimed at reducing consumption of sugary soft drinks than it is at raising tax revenues. Coca-Cola has already said that it is suspending an EUR17.0 million investment at one of its plants in France, as “a symbolic protest against a tax that punishes our company and stigmatises our products”.
