Poland’s chief sanitary inspector, Jarosław Pinkas, has drawn up a report that could provide the basis for a new tax on sugar, the gazetaprawna.pl website reported on Monday.

The average Pole ate over 51 kilogrammes of sugar in 2018, setting an unhealthy record, according to the website. It added that over the past four years sugar consumption has increased by a quarter.

The website reported it was possible that a new tax on sugar would be introduced in Poland, but only after the country’s October parliamentary elections.

A report by the National Health Fund has estimated that excessive consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages causes 1,400 deaths a year in Poland, according to gazetaprawna.pl.

Obesity has been linked to a range of diseases including cardiovascular disorders and cancer.

Almost four in 10 Poles are overweight and one in five is obese, according to a study carried out in July.
