HAWAII: U.S. ITC Rule in favor of Maui Pineapple
Douglas R. Schenk, President of Maui Pineapple Company, Ltd., said, "We are very pleased with the Commission's decision and extend our thanks to the Commissioners and their staff for their diligence and professionalism. We also want to thank our co-petitioners, the ILWU, and our elected representatives for their support. The decision affirms U.S. and international trade laws which place penalties on illegal dumping. We and our union will continue to aggressively oppose illegal dumping by importers, which threatens our company and our employees' jobs."
Schenk said the main benefit to Maui Pineapple is the assurance that importers will have to use fair pricing in the U.S. marketplace, which will allow us to compete effectively.
