Our story

Brook Whelan first set up People against Sugar Tax in August 2015 after deciding that the debate about sugar in the media was becoming increasingly unbalanced and irrational.

Right at the beginning, the decision was made that People against Sugar Tax would be a grassroots campaign, and not funded by industry. And we stand by that decision today. We're on the side of ordinary people in standing up for our food and soft drink choices.
