The Committee is made up of delegates from the Chilean Central Bank and several ministries related to the issue.

The milk and cheese safeguard was first established as “transitory” last October 13 following on complaints from the Chilean dairy industry, Federacion de Productores de Leche that was demanding a 31.5% levy.
