Cheese import quotas increased

     Cheese tray

For the first time since the 1970s, Tariff Rate Quotas (TRQ) for fine cheese and industrial cheese have been increased as part of the recently concluded Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between Canada and the European Union.

A 16,000 tonne increase for fine cheese will be divided equally between Canadian cheese manufacturers and cheese retailers/distributors, while a 1,700 tonne increase for industrial cheese goes entirely to food production companies. 

Qualifying parties must apply for a portion of the new quota allocation to Global Affairs Canada on/before September 8, 2017.

For more information, contact Brian Rowe, Director – Customs Compliance & Regulatory Affairs.
