Duty Free Allowance for Cream Cheese and Condensed Sweetened milk

Would like to know.........

Does Cream cheese and cans of condensed sweet milk fall under the quota of 1 kg of cream and milk each?

Or is the rule only for milk only and cream only?

Thanks

Why do you need to import sweet condensed milk? Migros has it.

That doesn't mention cream cheese or condensed milk, so not of any help.

Based on the link
https://www.ezv.admin.ch/ezv/en/home...d-tobacco.html
it seems to be duty free. But only if used for private use or as gifts.

It also does not mention Lego, Shoes, "This fine leather jackets"™ , and "Rubber Chicken With A Pulley"™

For commercial use you have to look up the duty rates at http://xtares.admin.ch
