Canada’s Department of Finance is accepting public comments through June 21 on eliminating tariffs on food manufacturing ingredients other than supply-managed products. Duty rates for the affected products, which are classified in dozens of subheadings under HS chapters 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 33 and 35 (a full list is available here, under “Department of Finance”), currently range as high as 14.5 percent. For goods classified in Chapter 20, the proposed tariff elimination would be limited to those used in the manufacture of food products or beverages.
