Wizards of Oz do it again

Australia continued to undercut other countries in supplying frozen chicken drumsticks to South Africa in March 2022.

Volumes were lower than in previous months (48 000 kg at an FOB price of R451 122) and the average price was slightly higher (R9.40/kg). Still, this was way cheaper than drumsticks supplied in the same month by Brazil (R16.68/kg), Canada (R16.32/kg) and the United States (R12.54/kg).

Australia also shipped 48 000kg of unspecified bone-in portions, in March, classified as “other: other” at an average price of R11.11/kg – once again cheaper than all competitors.

Even after the 62% import tariff applicable to Australian drumsticks, they are imported at half the producer price of South African drumsticks.

Looks like SARS inspectors should be waiting on the docks when the next Australian shipment arrives.
