Legislative proposal on the taxation of food and beverages with a high sugar content

PSD Deputy Costel Lupașcu wants an additional tax on foods and drinks with a high sugar content, saying he is worried about the alarming increase in the number of obese children.

“I am thinking of a law for overcharging foods and beverages with a high sugar content. There are such regulations in the United States, Great Britain, France and other states. The World Health Organization recommends that all countries apply such a tax. There is also evidence that such measures have led to lower consumption of these products. Obviously, before initiating a legislative proposal, I will consult with the other party colleagues and the PSD Group of the Chamber of Deputies.” (press release, 5 May 2017)
