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%. The duties are now being imposed on all honey imports from the two named countries. For all but five Chinese exporters, Commerce will retroactively impose antidumping duties to February because these exporters surged imports into the United States prior to Commerce's preliminary determination in order to beat the imposition of the duties.
