Prices of all 71 own-label and branded sanitary products sold by the Co-op will be cut

The Co-op has become the latest retailer to reduce the price of women’s sanitary products by covering the cost of the Tampon Tax.

It said a 5% price reduction would come into effect from tomorrow, ahead of government proposals to remove the VAT.

All 71 own-label and branded sanitary products sold by the Co-op will be cut, with bigger savings available for the Co-op’s 4.5 million members, who get a 5% reward every time they buy a Co-op own-brand product.

The move comes after Tesco, Waitrose and Morrisons announced they would be cutting prices of sanitary products.

“As a community retailer we feel it’s important to do right by our customers,” said Co-op director of trading Andy Phelps. “That’s why we are

covering the cost of the 5% VAT on sanitary products for women who shop with us.”
