Bulgaria Proposes Junk Food Tax

17 September 2015


Bulgaria's Minister of Health, Petar Moskov, has launched an initiative to improve the health of the nation's young people, including a proposed tax on junk foods.

Moskov urged food manufacturers to cooperate with the state to reduce levels of sugar, trans fats, salt and caffeine in foods. He said that draft legislation to impose taxes on these ingredients would be available within a week.

The new tax will be part of an overall health plan which will include removing all sales of unhealthy foods from schools.
