Sugary Drink Ban
Bloomberg said it is in the country’s interest to do something about empty calories and high sugar intake, which can lead to a host of health problems.
The company said that because of the milk content of its drinks, the fact that customers add their own sugar and still unanswered questions about the rules, it will continue selling 20-ounce ventis at its New York City stores.
The city has jurisdiction over restaurants, movie theaters, fast food restaurants and street carts, but not supermarkets or convenience stores that do not serve prepared foods.
The proposal, scheduled to take effect on March 12, would ban many eateries from selling high-sugar drinks in cups or containers bigger than 16 ounces.
The new regulation puts a 16-ounce limit on sugary drinks sold at city restaurants, movie theaters, sports venues and street carts and applies to both bottled and fountain drinks.
