South Africa: The United States Fills the Chicken Meat Quota for Second Successive Year

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Despite facing numerous challenges in the South African market, the United States filled the quota for bone-in chicken meat exports to South Africa for the second consecutive quota year, ending March 2019. During the 2018/2019 quota year, the United States exported $54.4 million in bone-in chicken meat to South Africa. In 2016, South Africa established an annual quota of 65,000 tons of bone-in chicken meat imports from the United States into South Africa, free of the anti-dumping duties. Based on the quota’s administration guidelines, South Africa will raise the 2019/2020 quota to 68,000 tons due to increases in domestic production and consumption. However, South Africa’s recent amendments to these guidelines introduces new measures that could negatively affect its future utilization. Due to the prohibitively high anti-dumping duty outside the quota, access to and functionality of the quota is vital to sustainability of U.S. chicken meat exports to South Africa.
