50% more Fruit and Veg Tax?
Say No!

To Prime Minister Rutte and members of the Dutch cabinet:

We count on you to do everything within your power to stimulate healthy eating, and make sure it is accessible to everybody. Healthy food is a right, not a privilege. We therefore call on you to scrap the proposed tax increase on fruit and vegetables, and instead make those foods tax-free.

The Dutch government just announced plans to increase taxes on fruits and vegetables by 50%! Almost half of Dutch citizens are overweight -- the last thing we need is for eating healthy to be even more expensive.

Only a few days until Rutte presents his new cabinet. When he does, let’s make sure this dangerous tax is off the table. From every corner of society, with scientists, politicians and businesses, we rise to reject Rutte’s unhealthy tax. Sign now, and then tell everyone!
