USA: U.S. honey industry fighting back against dumped imports
The U.S. honey industry, battling for its life against huge amounts of unfairly traded, low-priced honey from Argentina and China, applauded yesterday's announcement of antidumping duties on imports from the two countries. As determined by the Department of Commerce, the preliminary antidumping duties for Argentine exporters range between 50% and 61%, and the duties for Chinese exporters range between 37% and 184%.
