Under the levy, first proposed in the 2016 Budget in an effort to tackle obesity, soft drinks manufacturers have to pay an 18p charge per litre for products with added sugar, and a total sugar content of 5g or more per 100ml, with a higher charge of 24p per litre for drinks with 8g or more per 100ml. Pure fruit juices and products with a high milk content are exempt from the levy.
The two-year lead-in time was designed to give manufacturers the opportunity to reformulate their products.
The British Soft Drinks Association (BSDA) said taxation was not the correct way to go about improving health.
