Approximately a year after the implementation of the soft drinks industry levy, the UK plans to leave the European Union. The trade arrangements that the UK will adopt after Brexit are likely to influence the price of food and food ingredients including sugar, which currently follows European regulations under the Common Agricultural Policy. This could potentially interfere with the effectiveness of the planned soft drinks industry levy. We used the IMPACT Food Policy model to estimate the implications of Brexit on the price of sugar and the impact of the proposed soft drinks industry levy on cardiovascular mortality and inequalities in England.
