Ireland has introduced its tax on sugar-sweetened drinks this week, with legislation coming into effect on 1 May 2018.
The ‘Sugar-Sweetened Drinks Tax’ applies to water and juice based drinks with an added sugar content of more than 5g per 100ml. However, Pure fruit juices and dairy products are exempt from the tax on the basis of their nutritional value.
The two rates are: 20 cents (USD 24c) per litre with drinks of 5g-8g sugar per 100ml; and 30 cents (USD 36c) per litre applies to drinks with 8g or more of sugar per 100ml.
