Singapore is introducing a new requirement for drink toppings such as bubble tea pearls, jellies, whipped cream and ice cream to have sugar labels in a long-term strategy to reduce sugar intake by its population.

As reported by The Straits Times, the directive, under a Nutri-Grade system, will take effect from 30 December 2023, covering the sale of freshly prepared beverages.

 

The island state’s Ministry of Health (MOH) said that the system comprises colour-coded grades from A to D, with D containing the highest sugar and/or saturated fat content.

An extension of its current requirement, the rules will apply to drinks that are sold not just by food outlets and caterers, but also in non-retail settings such as workplaces, schools and healthcare institutions.

More Measures Needed For Singapore S Nutri Grade System To Improve Consumer Diets Study

Singapore MOH clarified that those who fail to comply with the new measures will face a fine of up to SGD1,000 or approximately RM3,452 and subsequent offences would be fined up to SGD2,000 or RM6904.

So, what do you guys think of this new measure being introduced by Singapore? Should Malaysia follow suit and implement something similar?
