Chancellor Cuts Cider Duty.
Martin Thatcher, Managing Director of Thatchers Cider and Chair of the National Association of Cider Makers (NACM) said:
“We are delighted that the Chancellor has decided to support the British cider industry by cutting duty by 2% in his Budget Statement. This is a very welcome decision and proves the Government understands the huge importance of our industry to rural communities.
“This important decision will be celebrated by cider makers up and down the country as it protects the investment they have made over many years to grow the industry and support thousands of jobs.
We and all cider drinkers will be raising a glass of delicious cider to the Chancellor this evening.”
