Although China has a huge food manufacturing industry, it still imports considerable amounts of processed food, among which dairy products take up a significant portion, according to CRI. On January 1, 2016, China adjusted import and export tariffs and expanded the application of tariff reductions on daily commodities. Temporary rates were applied to reduce tariffs on products which used to have high tariffs and flexible import demand, including infant milk powder. Import tariff on whey-protein partially hydrolyzed infant formula, extensively hydrolyzed infant formula, amino acid-based formula and lactose free formula was reduced substantially from 20% to 5% and that on infant milk powder in retail pack was reduced from 15% to 5%. The 15% tariff on other infant food was also cut to 5%.
