Is the UK sugar tax on soft drinks right for New Zealand?

Jamie Oliver pushed for a sugar tax on sugar sweetened beverages (SSB’s) in Britain and this is now working.

But would it be right for New Zealand?

Where is the evidence that such a measure could reduce our appalling obesity statistics or reduce the incidence of Type 2 Diabetes?

Find out if sugar taxes are right for us.
