MANAMA: Energy drinks have gone off shelves as Bahrain gears up for the implementation of the selective tax.

Markets and cold stores reportedly took Red Bull cans off the shelves, claiming that the company failed to supply them, reports our sister paper Akhbar Al Khaleej.

Bahrain has officially endorsed the selective tax on products deemed unhealthy for consumers.

Under the scheme, a tax of 50 per cent will be imposed on carbonated or fizzy drinks.

A selective tax of 100pc will be placed on energy drinks, such as Red Bull, and tobacco products, effectively doubling their price.
