Anti-dumping

On 14 December 2015, the Brazilian authorities initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of frozen potatoes from Germany, Belgium, France and the Netherlands (Circular No. 79, 11.12.2015).
The products subject to investigation are classified under HS code 2004.10.00 and are described as all potatoes sorts, processed in any way and with any type of cut prior to being frozen or stored at low temperatures. Any products falling under above mentioned HS code that are distant from this description are excluded from the investigation. The complaint was lodged on 26 October 2015 by Well Brazil Alimentos Ltda.

On 11 April 2016, the Brazilian Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade made a preliminary determination of dumping against imports of above product from Germany, Belgium, France and the Netherlands (Circular No. 22, 11.04.2016). The investigation continues until the final determination. Circular No. 22 was published in the Federal Official Gazette of Brazil on 12 April 2016.
