Anti-dumping

On February 4, 2011, the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service initiated a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of pineapple prepared or preserved in containers not exceeding one litre (consumer pineapple) and of pineapple prepared or preserved in containers exceeding one litre (FSI 'food service and industry' pineapple) from Thailand (Australian Customs Dumping Notice No. 2011/5).
On the same day, a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of the same good from the Philippines was initiated (see measure 7334), as well as a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of pineapple prepared or preserved in containers exceeding one litre (FSI 'food service and industry' pineapple) from the Philippines and Thailand (see measures 7336 and 7337).
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 2008.2000.
The application for a review was lodged on January 11, 2011, by Golden Circle Limited, the sole domestic producer and manufacturer of the goods subject to the duty.

On August 3, 2011, the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service issued the Statement of Essential Facts (SEF Reports No. 171d).
 
On October 13, 2011, the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service announced that the Minister for Home Affairs decided upon the continuation of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of pineapple fruit (consumer) from Thailand (Australian Customs Dumping Notice No. 2011/48). The extension of the duty enters into force on October 17, 2011, for a period of five years. The rate of the duty is 56%, at the exception of the company Thai Pineapple Canning Industry Corporation Ltd. whose exports are not subject to the payment of duty (Australian Customs Dumping Notice No. 2011/46).
 
On 9 March 2016, the Commissioner of the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission initiated a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of the subject good from Thailand (Anti-dumping Notice No. 2016/21, 09.03.2016). On the same day, a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of the same good from the Philippines was initiated (see measure 7334), as well as a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of pineapple prepared or preserved in containers exceeding one litre (FSI 'food service and industry' pineapple) from the Philippines and Thailand (see measures 7336 and 7337).

On 17 October 2016, the Australian authorities extended the definitive duty imposed on imports of the subject good from Thailand following the conclusion of the sunset review. The rate of duty is 9.2%.

On 21 February 2019, the Australian authorities amended the definitive duty imposed on imports of pineapple fruit (consumer) from Thailand following a review. The rate of duty is 2.6% or 16.8% depending on the company. This is with the exception of the companies Kuiburi Fruit Canning Co Ltd, Kuiburi Fruit Cup Co. Ltd, Tipco Pineapple Company Ltd and Prime Products Industry Co. Ltd. The rate of duty for these companies is calculated on the basis of the "floor price".
