South Africa: Anti-Dumping Duties Suspended for Competitors but Remain for U.S. Poultry

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   SF2022-0022

On August 1, 2022, the Minister of Trade, Industry and Competition announced a decision to suspend the imposition of Anti-Dumping Duties (ADDs) on poultry from Brazil, Denmark, Ireland, Poland, and Spain for a period of twelve months “considering the rapid rise in food process… as well as the impact that the imposition of the anti-dumping duties may have on the price of chicken.” Although the Commission investigating dumping found that poultry originating in these countries was dumped into the Southern African Customs Union (SACU) market and recommended the application of ADDs, the Minister determined that the imposition of these duties would have a negative impact on the poor.
