  • Health Promotions Levy – a net negative impact on South African non-alcoholic beverage industry

    Posted in Media Release, statements on Feb 28, 2019

    In the ten months since the Health Promotions Levy (HPL) was introduced, it has put pressure on the local non-alcoholic industry in already difficult operating conditions, as well as raising prices for hard-pressed consumers.

Consequently, this is limited the opportunity for growth and job creation in the sector and has resulted in downward pressure on the full value chain.
