On November 5, 2020 the Government of Turkey published a notification in the Official Gazette of the Republic of Turkey (T.C. Resmî Gazete) specifying a reduction in the import duties for lentils.

Government of Canada has confirmed that the notification reduces Turkey’s import duties as follows:

·         Red Lentils: Reduced from 19.3% to 9%, until January 1, 2021.

Pulse Canada is working with the Government of Canada to gain further clarity regarding the applicability of the reduced duty rates and will be communicating all updates to CSCA Members.
