“Today’s Budget announcement that there will be a levy introduced on sugary drinks from 2018 is extremely disappointing.

“It is a quick fix that won’t fix anything apart from lining the Chancellor’s coffers. The vending industry maintains the view that a strong focus must be placed on educating the nation about maintaining a healthy, well-balanced diet where sugary snacks like fizzy drinks, can be enjoyed in moderation.

“This move by the Chancellor will simply mean people will be charged more for what they drink rather than being in a position to make an informed decision on what they buy.

“The changes announced in the Budget must now also be further supported by better education around nutrition, rather than penalising the soft drinks industry any further. Only this will achieve long lasting results, ultimately helping consumers to make educated, well-informed choices and maintain a healthy diet.”
