EPA Helpdesk Webinar 5: EPA Preferences on Dairy Products

What are the EPA opportunities for EU dairy exporters to Japan?

The EPA offers important market access opportunities for EU dairy exporters to Japan.  Duties will be gradually phased out for hard cheeses and a tariff quota will allow for duty free access as from 1/4/2033 for fresh cheeses.  Import market access improvement also for other dairy products such as butter, whey products and skimmed milk powder.

Each webinar will address a different topic or sector and will look at the changes the EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement will make and the opportunities it will create. Each webinar will be accompanied by a factsheet and a practical guide. For more information on the EPA Helpdesk please click here.
