Bri­tish chef slaps charges on sug­ary drinks

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Variety -

Bri­tish celebrity chef and healthy eat­ing cru­sader Jamie Oliver has slapped a sur­charge on sug­ary drinks sold in all his restau­rants, across the globe.

Af­ter speak­ing out against the empty calo­ries and nu­tri­tional haz­ards of fizzy, sug­ary drinks for kids, Oliver has made good on his protests and an­nounced plans to add a 10p (15 cents USD) tax on bev­er­ages with added sugar, re­ported The Sun­day Times.

Money col­lected from the tax will be do­nated to Sus­tain, a char­ity that ad­vo­cates healthy food ini­tia­tives across Bri­tain.

An ex­pla­na­tion of the sug­ary drink levy will be printed on all menus in Jamie Oliver restau­rants, which span the UK, Ire­land, Sin­ga­pore, Hong Kong, Brazil and Aus­tralia, among oth­ers.
