BRAZIL: Brazil acts at WTO over EU boneless chicken row
The Brazilian government has launched the first stage of dispute proceedings at the World Trade Organisation (WTO) in a complaint against the European Union (EU).

New regulations unite consignments with salt content of 1.2% with another classification for unsalted frozen chicken, for which duty is much higher (€102.4/100kg/net) (US$99.7/100kg/net) than it was for the salted chicken designation that previously covered these imports (15.4% ad valorem).
