Sugar Tax

New legislation has been brought in by the government, which means a 'sugar tax' is being applied to high sugar drinks. This levy on soft drinks is part of the government’s plans to reduce childhood obesity by removing added sugar from soft drinks.

What this means for Eat & Shop Customers

The University is committed to offering a wide range of products for customers to choose from. With the introduction of sugar tax, we will continue to stock a variety of drink options, but for high sugar drinks, a minimal tax charge will be added to the price, including the standard meal deal price. These charges will be 10p per can and 15p per bottle.
