First food fat tax

Denmark has introduced what is believed to be the world's first fat tax - a surcharge on foods that are high in saturated fat.Butter, milk, cheese, pizza, meat, oil and processed food are now subject to the tax if they contain more than 2.3% saturated fat.



The Danish tax amounts to 16 Danish kroner ($2.83) per kilogram of saturated fat in a product. Copenhagen officials expect the levy to generate almost 2.2 billion Danish kroner ($390-million) for the government.
