California Prune Board welcomes 0% tariffs on prune imports into the UK

The California Prune Board has announced its support for the UK Government’s decision to suspend the UK import tariff on dried prunes. Effective from 1 January 2023, the suspension sees the removal of the 8% tariff until at least 31 December 2024.

The decision gives UK dried fruit importers greater choice and is likely to be welcomed by importers looking for a premium quality and great tasting product. California offers high-quality, naturally sweet prunes and the state makes the US the world’s largest premium producer.

Industry sources say removing the tariff will give the sector a level playing field, and UK trade access to premium, greater tasting prunes that will appeal to consumers
