Govt to levy ‘chips tax’ on more foods - newspaper

Hungary's government plans to levy a tax on unhealthy food on more products, business daily Napi Gazdaság said on Thursday.

The "chips tax" on food high in sugar, salt, carbohydrates and caffeine came into force on September 1.

The government wants to levy the tax on more products from January, the paper said.

Hungarian-owned supermarket franchise CBA told the paper there was no big rush on products that fall under the chips tax before it was introduced. UK-owned supermarket chain Tesco has not stocked up on the products, but French-owned peer Auchan has, Napi Gazdaság said.
