Details

This qualitative research project looked at small producers and importers of soft drinks containing added sugar, providing insight into their characteristics and practices.

Its main aim was to assist the development of the Soft Drinks Industry Levy by finding out how small producers and importers operate in the soft drinks with added sugar market, and the potential impact of a levy on them.

The research provided evidence of how much small producers and importers make or trade their products, information which helped to set the exemption level for small businesses.
