Namibia Agronomic Board expands ban on imports

The Namibia Agronomic Board (NAB) has banned the importation of all fresh produce on the Horticultural Special Control Scheme into Namibia, except for green peppers and washed potatoes. These two products, though open for importation without restriction, would have to subscribe to the 47% market share promotion (MSP).

The MSP allows for the implementation of import restrictions on selected horticultural products during times of sufficient local production, which encourages fresh produce traders to source locally produced horticultural products. Besides the products that can be imported in December, beetroots, coloured peppers, gem squashes, and lettuce heads (iceberg) can be imported in the first two weeks of the month.
