Re: Swiss Quality Food - 139 chf/kg

Since the meat is from Canada, I looked on a online grocery how much was the price for that meat:

Wait for it....

Between 4.40$ and 4.73$ / 100 gr.

coop is also advertising ground beef for 13,90 chf but per kilogram. The origin says Ch/Germany. For me that's unclear? is it swiss beef or german beef? Also if its from germany how can they sell german beef for 13.90 when import duty is at 20 chf per kg.
It's 20.00 / Kg for personal imports. For companies with an import license it is much less.

Re: Swiss Quality Food - 139 chf/kg

I once paid 18.90 per 100g for US filet mignon at Globus and it was worth every ridiculous rappen!

Now the SuperCoop in Wintherthur and my local Coop in Oerlikon Center11 are selling beef aged on the bone at a 20% premium over normal Swiss beef...oh so good but still around CHF40 for two 300g entrecote.

Re: Swiss Quality Food - 139 chf/kg

If you think CHF 139.00/kg is expensive, look for the Swiss Bio Fillet of Beef in the Coops that stock it (e.g. Sihlcity). CHF 149.00/kg, and it's not even properly aged. No match for the Irish Black Aberdeen Angus fillet of beef (dry aged) from Rewe Waldshut for EUR 30.00/kg (+ duty if you're "over").

Even online, Angus tenderloin from Coop @ home is a cool CHF 129.40/kg.

Re: Swiss Quality Food - 139 chf/kg

I wonder if it has been repacked also and a new date slapped on it. I have yet to have a good piece of meat that comes from the coop

Just go to a farm. I pay 17.00 / Kg for a whole lamb, and that's already butchered and portioned up. At my cash and carry I recently bought a massive fillet of aged Irish beef (not kidding, another 2 inches I could have milked it), it must have been at least 1.5 Kg and I paid 25.00 chufs - OK, it was half price as it was aged a bit more than planned but even for 50.00 chufs it would have been cheap.

So, anyone know what the fees are with an import license? I would presume it's public information in the form of a Swiss law/directive?

Not sure if its the same, but for potatoes you bid for a price per kg for so many Kg's that you will import in a year and it's a fraction of the full price.... not quoting figures as I don't have them to hand but when I looked at importing crisps it was, say, 20.00 / Kg duty but if you bid for 1000 tons a year you could pay 50 raps or so.

There is a list of license holders on the Customs website somewhere and you can make an offer to those license holders to use some of their consignment, for a profit for them of course.
