On January 26, 2024, the Department of Trade, Industry and Competition (DTIC) together with the International Trade Administration (ITAC) announced the decision to implement a 25 percent rebate on bone-in cuts and 30 percent rebate on boneless chicken of imported chicken. This decision follows an announcement in October 2023 that ITAC would consider rebates to avoid poultry shortages after the country was affected by a Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) outbreak. The rebates will be allocated by means of an annual quota that will be valid for 12 months and dependent on confirmation for the Department of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development (DALRRD) that the current HPAI outbreak still has an impact on domestic production and supply. The volume of meat that is eligible for the rebate may not exceed a basic annual quota of 172,000 metric tons.
