  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   SF2021-0026

On March 16, 2021, the International Trade Administration Commission (ITAC) announced plans to review the tariff structure of poultry (fowls of the species Gallus Domesticus). ITAC will undertake this tariff investigation, which stems from the Poultry Sector Master Plan that was agreed to and signed by government and the poultry industry stakeholders in November 2019. In 2018, South Africa imported 566,208 tons of poultry products; however, there was a decline over the following two years with total poultry imports dropping to 485,542 tons in 2020. The total poultry imports declined by 11 percent from 2020 to 2019. Post forecasts a 15 percent decrease in imports for the year 2021.
