Argentina Exporter Guide 2024
Argentine imports of consumer-oriented food and beverages in 2023 are projected to remain at 2022 levels, due to continuing economic uncertainty, weak consumer spending, and the expectation of another year of high inflation. However, although the new administration of President Milei has not published specific new policies on imports yet, it is anticipated the administrations will be more liberal than in the past. Moreover, tight quantitative import controls are expected to be replaced by data-driven statistical information procedures. This transition will see a shift towards a more transparent approach to managing imports. Despite challenges, opportunities still exist for products not produced in sufficient quantity domestically, such as food ingredients, plant-based products, pork products, seafood, health oriented, and craft or specialty products aimed at high-income consumers.
