I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

I know we have talked food before but I wonder about supply and tariffs. 30% of our food is imported from the internal protected market. Is there a tariff on imported NZ lamb and butter to protect the internal market?

Do we import Australian beef? It used to be available in Cyprus before Cyprus joined the EU.

By coincidence perhaps there was an article about Blue Skys who have production in Egypt and Gambia amongst others. Is there a tariff penalty on imports into the EU?

What food do we import from the EU that is not readily available from outside? Israeli citrus fruits vice Spanish. As for wine, who would miss the French, German and Italian when we have Australia and New Zealand not to mention Americans?
