In the 2016 budget, George Osborne announced the Governments plans for a new tax on sugary drinks. This new tax takes effect from the 1st of April 2018.
The result this tax has on post-mix syrups is particularly shocking, with up to a whopping £15.00 per box tax added. We are not ignoring the effect of this tax and are undergoing a total revamp of our recipes to keep our syrups within the no tax threshold.
As from January 2018, customers will have a choice to transfer to a full range of syrups which have been formulated to not only have a zero-tax position, but to have very little change in the original taste and feel.
Customers who prefer a high sugar product will, of course, continue to be able to purchase this range also.
