French Fast Food Tax

A senatorial report in France is now pushing for the implementation of a fast food or ‘behavioural’ tax. The tax would target products linked to heart disease, focusing in particular on soft drinks. The report 'Taxation and public health: evaluation of behavioural taxation' argues that a behavioural tax would help combat the surge in diet related diseases and associated costs.

The report (in French) can be found here

We’d be keen to hear the views of FCRN members, especially those from France -  so please do comment in the comment-box below this story on the website. 

You can read a summary of the report here.

You can find other reports and studies on health taxes here.
