South Africa to Investigate Dumping from Brazil and the E.U.


According to USDA-FAS GAIN report SF2021-0020, released on March 24th an application by the South African Poultry Association has led to the South African International Trade Administration Commission initiating an antidumping investigation on bone-in chicken imports.  Products from Brazil, Poland, Ireland, Denmark and Spain will be subject to a review covering the period July 1st 2019 through June 30th 2020.


 Brazil currently exports bone-in chicken meat to South Africa as a most-favored-nation subject to a tariff of 62 percent.  The four EU nations export under a Southern African Development Community European Union Economic Partnership Agreement are subject to a safeguard duty of 15 percent.


During the period July 2019 through June 2020, South Africa imported 198,678 metric tons of bone-in chicken meat, down 24 percent from the corresponding period 2018/2019.  Brazil was the leading exporter with 40,141 metric tons down 54 percent, followed by Poland with 21,219 metric tons, down 31 percent and Ireland with 20,572 metric tons, up 22 percent.
