Norway will increase tariffs on imports of cheese and meat

The current fixed rate per-kilogram tariff will change to a varying percentages tariff system depending on the amount of meat products and cheeses to be imported.

Wednesday 10 October 2012 (5 years 9 months 13 days ago)

The Norwegian Government has accepted the proposal made by the Centre Party (SP), and supported by associations of local farmers, to change the current fixed rate per-kilogram tariff system, to a varying percentages tariff system that depends on the amount of meat products and cheeses you want to import.

This is an 'old' assertion of Norwegian farmers, advocates of this new system that favors expensive imports and domestic production. In fact, this same proposal was rejected by the Nordic country's government earlier this year, but pressure from big companies like Tine and a large majority in parliament has made the Executive from Stoltenberg change his mind and the new rates will be presented with the 2013 budgets on October 8th.

Norway imported food in 2011 amounting to SEK 39,000 million (5,230 million Euros), 4.000 million more than the previous year, of which SEK 940 million were for meat and 534 million for cheese. Thus, meat imports grew 44%, while dairy product were up 13%
