AH05019 - Levies on Imported Products

The purpose of this report is to investigate the possibility of having existing statutory levies on fresh and processed horticultural produce applied to imported horticultural produce. In response to growing concern threat imports of fresh and processed horticultural food products are increasing and that these imports are gaining advantage from the marketing efforts of levied Australian producers. The research undertaken in this project will assist the horticultural industry in assessing its options and the related processes in regards to implementing changes on imported products.
