Ecuador’s National Customs Service (SENAE) announced on February 2, 2023, that Distiller’s Dried Grains with Solubles (DDGS) will no longer be subject to a 12 percent value added tax. Like other grains used for animal feed, DDGS will now face zero value added tax following import. This comes after years of efforts by FAS Quito, U.S. Grains Council, and importers to facilitate the trade of DDGS.
