The chancellor has announced that the government will retain the current duty exemption for small cider producers.
Thanks to your support we were able to hand in a petition with over 26,000 signatures urging the government to back small cider producers. On 8 July, the government responded positively in its budget.
This is excellent news for real cider drinkers and small producers alike. CAMRA is delighted with the governments commitment and we will now be working hard to ensure they can keep the promise with a legal exemption in the EU directive.
Thank you for making this a campaign win!
