New chicken imports tariffs will hit the poor hard

Tags: ,


Poor households in South Africa spend 34% of their budget on food, of this 59% is chicken, so increasing import tariffs could cause significant social consequences.

Recently increased tariffs on chicken imports will threaten South Africa’s food security, according to the Emerging Black Importers and Exporters Association of South Africa and the Animal Protein Association of Brazil.

The new tariffs increased from 37% to 62% on frozen bone-in chicken portions (a 25% increase) and from 12% to 42% (a 30% increase) on frozen boneless portions.
