Sweetened Food stuff like soft drinks and juices are favorite beverages for most of us especially at a hot day and after exotic exercise….BUT like our caring government realized that over consumption of Sugar intake, which is one of the factor that caused obesity and health effect; has proposed and soon implementing a TAX effective 1st July 2019 to discourage Rakyat for over intake of SUGAR !

All ready-to-drink package beverages exceeding 5%, fruit/vegetable juices exceeding 12% and milk-based exceeding 7% of SUGAR, will be levied for extra TAXES !
