Complaint
CORI Ltd visited Zimbabwe last year to explore their local market to check if there is potential for their products (cooking oil). CORI Ltd discovered that they could not export cooking oil into Zimbabwe as the government in Zimbabwe has instituted Statutory Instrument (S.I 64) that banned imports of a variety of products (cooking oil is one of them).

Zimbabwe also has 40% (or $0.50/litre) duty on cooking oil imports  
Progress update note
On 3rd April 2018, Zimbabwe Focal Point reported that SI 64 of 2016 has been consolidated with other SIs through SI 122 of 2017 which was gazetted on 22 September 2017. The consolidated SI removed the requirement for import and export licences on some products. The new requirements of SI 122 of 2017 will be recorded in the Non Tariff Measures database for Zimbabwe
