It is necessary to sparkling water hardly


"Izvestia" writes that excises on sweet sparkling water in Russia suggest to increase by 20%. Authors of the idea believe that it will promote transition to healthy food of the Photo: Martin Schutt/DPA/TASS Advisory council at the Government of the Russian Federation suggests to enter excises on sweet sparkling water, and at once 20 percent. The initiative is written by the Izvestia newspaper. According to authors of the document, it will promote transition of citizens to healthy food. Experts give such arguments: 2 million Russians suffer from excess weight, and it is more than 1% of the population. Moreover, the measure corresponds to the recommendations of World Health Organization about fight against noninfectious diseases.

the Initiative was supported by the Ministry of Health. Two years ago excises on sparkling water suggested to enter in the Ministry of Finance, but have refused this measure, having counted her inefficient, the president of the Union of producers of soft drinks and mineral waters Maxim Novikov:maksim Novikov the president of the Union of producers of soft drinks and mineral waters "Says the first initiatives about introduction of similar measures sounded from the Ministry of Finance in 2016, then we managed to achieve constructive dialogue — the regulator has heard us. Today this offer at the level of opinion of a number of experts, opinion of the non-core regulator. Introduction of a 20 percent excise from retail cost — extremely drastic and not reasonable measure. Moreover, authors of this initiative, and it is advisory council at the government, don't provide any scientific proofs that the measure has under itself the reasons. Consumption of soft drinks in Russia is one of the lowest in the world, his contribution to a diet from the recommended standard daily rate less than 2%. And if to take real consumption which pays off Rosstat then these are about 1,2%. World practices which are known to us give the grounds to believe that the measure is extremely ineffective. In some countries the excise was entered and then cancelled in view of the fact that didn't render that effect for which legislators hoped. In some countries excises were entered when consumption of soft drinks was about five-seven times higher, than now in Russia". According to Novikov, producers of sweet drinks have already independently begun to reduce the content of sugar in drinks and pressure in the form of excises isn't required to them.
