Import duties on sugar have been revised upwards from 213.1c/kg to 233.81c/kg with effect from 8 June 2018. The tariff codes impacted are 1701.12, 1701.13, 1701.14, 1701.91 and 1701.99.
This is the first adjustment in 2018 and comes at a time when the South African Sugar Association (SASA) brought an application to ITAC, to increase the reference price. SASA wants the sugar reference price to be increased from $556 per ton to $837 per ton. The investigation by ITAC is still ongoing, however, you can read more about this here.
