Hello, thanks for taking your time to read this. 

When I was on holiday in Spain, I noticed that they had lots of variety in terms of soft drink products compared to where I live, in the United Kingdom. One interesting example was Fanta

I had stopped at a local corner shop with my sister and my mother on a particularly hot day, and we decided to buy some drinks for the walk we were doing. I bought Fanta Exotic while my sister bought Strawberry Fanta. We bought the drinks and continued with our walk.

After finishing the drink, which tasted really nice, I noticed the nutrition levels on the side of the can. My drink had 48% in sugar levels whilst my sister’s can had 89%. We were shocked after discovering this.

After discussing the situation for a while, we came to the conclusion that this is actually not only in Spain, but in most of Europe. My mother takes business trips to France and Germany, and she notices drinks with these high levels too. 

However, the reason for this may be because the weather is much nicer in Europe and on Sundays, most shops are closed. This means that people in these countries will have to do some sort of physical activity (usually sports) at the weekend. They would need lots of sugar to keep them going. 

Sugar levels have been severely reduced in the UK already. My point is not that it should be the same in the rest of Europe, but they could at least make an effort to lower the sugar peecentages, as I am sure 50% would be the maximum level of sugar required. 

If this petition gains 5,000,000 signatures, I will write a formal letter (or email) to James Quincey, the CEO of Coca Cola (Fanta is made by the brand) to ask him to potentially reduce the sugar levels of Coca Cola’s products in the EU, with proof of this petition. 

Thanks again, I hope you consider signing!
