How will the tax work?

Answer

TOP will sit down with a panel of nutrition experts and improve the current front of pack labelling scheme so that we have a clear definition of junk food. Junk food will be labelled with a "red" traffic light style sticker, and for these foods advertising to children will be prohibited.

We will tax the junk food so that there is an average price rise of 20%. The revenue will be used to fund free dental for the poorest 20% of society, reducing GP visits to $10, and fruit and veg box schemes to provide affordable high quality foods.
