31 Dec 2018, what are the import conditions for shrimp in Europe?
According to the European Commission, a tariff quota is a reduction in the customs duties payable for certain products for limited quantities of imported goods. This makes it possible to regulate the entry of goods of specific origin in order to fulfill the European demand which does not produce enough goods.
For SN Trading, this concerns imports of tropical shrimp from South America (Venezuela and Brazil as well as Asian countries), more specifically regarding the Penaeus Vannamei Shrimp – Monodon intended for transformation.
From 2016-2018, concerning the import of tropical shrimps, the reduced-duty quota introduced in 2013 is maintained : from 40 000T in 2013 until 2016, reduced to 30 000T in 2017 and maintained for 2018 to 30 000T.

Incluso si esto no cubre la demanda europea, esto es satisfactorio en espera de la próxima evaluación de los contingentes arancelarios durante los acuerdos de libre comercio con Ecuador y Vietnam.
