Removal of the duty rebate on demineralised whey powder


On 18 November 2022, ITAC published an amendment for the deletion of rebate item  304.07/0404.10.01.06  which allowed duty relief if the demineralised whey powder was used to manufacture prepared infants’ food.

Importers will have to pay the full duty of R4.50 per kg, to a maximum of 96%, when importing demineralised whey powder under tariff heading 0404.10, when it is used in preparing baby food.
