India is reducing the basic tariff on some US poultry products

The tariff will be decreased from 30 percent to 5 percent for frozen whole U.S. turkeys and frozen turkey parts and on some duck imports, making the products more price competitive in the growing market.

The action comes after years of effort to reduce the duty, and it was celebrated by the industry.

This is a significant, positive action,” said Greg Tyler, USAPEEC president and CEO.

“We very much appreciate our government’s ongoing efforts to increase access for U.S. poultry and egg products in India. The lowering of tariffs on turkey meat and for some duck exports is a great success.”

Details regarding the expanded access for duck are forthcoming and will be reported to USAPEEC membership as they become available.

Tyler added, “We hope that in the future we are able to gain better access for chicken and to expand access for duck as well, which can help to further address the protein needs of Indian consumers.”

“This move creates an important new market for U.S. turkey producers and will give Indians more affordable access to a nutritious, delicious protein,” said Joel Brandenberger, president and CEO of National Turkey Federation.

The work by the Office of the United States Trade Representative and the USDA was instrumental in achieving the agreement.
