Predictably, yesterday’s Budget ushered in new tax rises on alcohol and tobacco. The Independent takes a typical look. And here’s the view from the Daily Mail, which leads off the threat to pubs from the hike on booze.
The Financial Times also noticed there was a Budget yesterday.
The Times, meanwhile, reports on the scathing report by consumer body Which? about unhealthy packed sandwiches. The Guardian is also among the papers to cover the story.
Elsewhere in The Times, the paper looks back on yesterday’s results from Nestlé, as the world’s largest food company wrestles with falling sales of bottled water.
And the Daily Telegraph follows up the news that Diageo is eyeing a bid for the drinks arm of luxury goods giant LVMH, which could see the Guinness brewer take over champagne brands including Moet & Chandon.
