A CHANGING REGULATORY ENVIRONMENT CALLS FOR A REVIEW OF EXTANT BRAND STRATEGIES

The regulatory environment is changing based on a society that is more health conscious, advocating for the preservation of life. Increasing of taxes on products such as tobacco, alcohol and now sugar-sweetened beverages are a result of increased lobbying from non-profit organisations who are pushing governments to penalize consumers to protect themselves from themselves by making it relatively unaffordable to purchase these products. By increasing taxes it is assumed that the consumers will use less of the good based on a higher pricing point. The fewer units that are consumed, the less strain on your body and ultimately the longer you live. Raised taxes also benefits the tax man because, from a human nature standpoint, it takes a lot of willpower to kick a habit, let alone reduce your utility threshold. We live in an increasingly stressful world and the products we are told to consume less and less of, sometimes provide the temporary relief we need to get by. A rather controversial but true state of affairs based on our daily trials and tribulations. read more
