Cheese tariffs removed

This article was originally published in Foodnews

TRADE barriers between Switzerland and the EU regarding cheese were lifted on 1 June. Previously, Swiss cheese producers were subsidised and protected from imports through quotas, but faced duties when exporting to EU countries. Now they can have unrestricted access to EU markets, but domestically they will face competition from other cheese producers, most notably France, Italy and Germany. Switzerland currently exports around 50 000 tonnes of cheese and imports around 30 000 tonnes, mainly from Italy. Prices for cheese in Switzerland are expected to drop due to the increased competition.
