From April 2017, a tax on sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs) will be introduced in South Africa to help reduce excessive sugar intake in the South African population. ADSA acknowledges that many South Africans are at a greater health risk due to the high consumption of free/added sugars and is in support of the proposed taxation of SSBs. Further, it is ADSA’s position that there is a need for multiple additional interventions across multiple sectors to improve the population’s diet, address undernutrition and protect against overweight, obesity and non-communicable diseases.
