Lester Kiewit interviews Nzama Lawrence Mbalati of the Healthy Living Alliance.

Junk food must be taxed, argues the Healthy Living Alliance.

It proposes the expansion of South Africa’s health promotion levy – better known as the “sugar tax” - to include ultra-processed food.

It also wants the levy to be increased from 11% to 20%.
