South Africa: South Africa Initiates Antidumping Duty Investigations into Bone-in Chicken Meat from Brazil and Four EU Countries

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

On February 22, 2021, South Africa's International Trade Administration Commission (ITAC) initiated antidumping duty investigations on bone-in chicken imports from Poland, Ireland, Denmark, Spain and Brazil. The investigation is in response to an application by the South African Poultry Association alleging that these poultry products are being dumped in the Southern African Customs Union (SACU) market, and thereby causing or threatening to cause material injury to the SACU industry. South African meat importers stand firmly against these investigations and plan to contest the allegations formally.
