I don't believe in subsidies to or any other business, how is that a 'free' market.

Tarifs are paid by importers not exporters, being that your neighbours are customs officials I would have thought you might know this. Your well aware of the limit on importing meat to CH. Those import tariffs don't stop the Swiss buying foreign meat in CH.
"Those import tariffs don't stop the Swiss buying foreign meat in CH." This is because local Swiss meat has astronomic prices!

Quick google search;
Rump steak Coop 100g CHF 8.96
Rump Steak Tesco 100g £1.54 (say CHF 1.90)

Even with a 40% tariff British rump steak would still be less than a third of Swiss prices
