This briefing report by the Centre for Diet and Activity Research (CEDAR) addresses changes in the Common Agricultural Policy that is restructuring the food system to reduce the commodity price of sugar. As a result, sugars will become cheaper to incorporate into processed foods, potentially increasing sugar contents in existing products and the diversity of products containing sugar. This is likely to have a negative impact on initiatives to reduce sugar consumption in the UK and across Europe.
