NZ: Needed: a fat tax

A report released today by Diabetes New Zealand (DNZ)and Fight the Obesity Epidemic (FOE) shows that a Fat Tax is viable and justifiable.

It outlines the principles and practicalities of implementing a fat tax and concludes that two taxes are required

  •  one for fat
  •  the other for soft drinks, snack foods and other “energy dense/nutrient poor” foods.

The report, Cutting the Fat: How a fat tax can help fight obesity can be downloaded from the Publications section of this website.
