Jamaica Considering To Impose Taxes On Sugary Drinks

Prime Minister Andrew Holness says Jamaica and other CARICOM countries have agreed to give serious consideration to imposing taxes on sugar-sweetened drinks as a means to cut non-communicable diseases. Prime Minister Holness made the declaration at a press conference yesterday at the close of the 38th CARICOM heads of government summit in Grenada. He stated that regional leaders discussed the matter and are in agreement that action is needed. Jamaica has banned the sale of sweetened juices in schools by the State-run Nutrition Products Limited. The ban takes effect in September when the new school year begins.
