keyboard_arrow_downFat tax – why is Denmark such a quitter?
At the beginning of this year, Denmark’s government was all for it. Heck, it had already introduced a tax on saturated fat in products. But within a few months, the situation has completely turned around and it looks like the idea is dead in the water. Proposals to scrap the existing fat tax, and aims to introduce a similar tax on sugary food and drink, are now written into Denmark’s draft budget. Consensus of opinion is that the government will ratify them.
