Stop the lemonade tax on plant-based milk

56,117 signatures

The government decided to apply a tax named “lemonade tax” on plant-based milks from 2024 onwards. This means that the tax will increase on plant-based milks from €8,83 (2022) to €26,13 (2024) per 100 litres. This will be done, without applying this tax rule on products such as cow milk and chocolate milk.

In Dutch



Plant-based milk lovers, vegans and lactose intolerants;


establish that:

  • That it is unfair to apply the lemonade tax on plant-based milks, while cow milk and chocolate milk is excluded;
  • Plant-based milk will become way more expensive, and people will be discouraged to choose this alternative;
  • The transition to plant-based proteins instead of animal proteins will not be reached;
  • To stop this lemonade tax, in order to give everyone an equal chance to pay a fair price for an environmentally- and animal friendly alternative for cow milk.


and request

  • Except plant-based milk from the increasing lemonade tax and the tax plan of 2024;
  • Exempt plant-based milk, just like cow milk and soya drinks from the lemonade tax;
  • Stimulate the consumption of plant-based milk and to research which ways these products can be subsidized, just like cow milk.

Updates Belasting op 'frisdrank' straks drie keer zo hoog, óók op havermelk

Vanaf 1 januari 2024 betaal je een stuk meer voor veel dranken, waaronder ook plantaardige melksoorten. Dat komt doordat de belasting flink omhooggaat: met 17 cent per liter.

De zogenoemde verbruiksbelasting (...) lees verder.
