Fat Tax Introduced in Denmark


There’s been a lot of talk about this recently in the news, but now one country has actually done it. Welcome to Denmark, the land of havarti cheese, Carlsberg beer and the first “fat” tax in the world.

Denmark has become the first country in the world to add a special tax on foods that are particularly high in saturated fat, specifically more than 2.3%. This includes processed foods, cheese and meat, which will all be subjected to a surcharge of just over $3CA (16DKK) for every kilo of saturated fats in a food product (imagine having to calculate the amount of saturated fat in everything. What a nightmare for the manufacturers and restaurants!). The government hopes that the fat tax will discourage consumers from buying too many fatty foods, thereby limiting their intake and making for a healthier population overall.

The tax, instated on October 1, is the first of its kind in the world. There has been a lot of discussion in the media regarding one in Canada, but it has yet to be realized. Although saturated fat does contribute to many health problems, so do many other foods when eaten in abundance (e.g. sugar, nitrites). And look at France, a country famous for its penchant for cheese, butter, foie gras, and its slim women!

We’ll be watching how it goes for Denmark.
