Anti-dumping

On January 19, 2015, the Commissioner of the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of tomatoes, whether peeled or unpeeled, prepared or preserved otherwise than by vinegar or acetic acid, either whole or in pieces (including diced chopped or crushed), with or without other ingredients (including vegetables, herbs or spices), in packs not exceeding 1.14 litres in volume, from Italy as far as the companies Feger di Gerardo Ferraioli S.p.A. and La Doria S.p.A. are concerned (Anti-dumping Notice No. 2015/05, 19.01.2015).
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code: 2002.1000.
The complaint was lodged on November 24, 2014 by SPC Ardmona Operations Limited.
Australia has already imposed an anti-dumping duty on imports of prepared or preserved tomatoe products originating in Italy (see measure 5304). However, this measure does not apply to goods produced by the companies that are subject to the current investigation.

On May 1st, 2015, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission extended the time granted to issue the Statement of Essential Facts (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2015/56).

On August 7th, 2015, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission extended again the time granted to issue the Statement of Essential Facts (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2015/97, 07.08.2015).

On September 4th, 2015, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission issued the Statement of Essential Facts (SEF No. 276, 04.09.2015).

On September 11th, 2015, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission decided to impose a provisional anti-dumping duty on imports of prepared or preserved tomatoes from Italy and produced by the companies Feger di Gerardo Ferraioli S.p.A. and La Doria S.p.A. (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2015/112, 11.09.2015). The rate of the duty is 7.5% for the company Feger di Gerardo Ferraioli S.p.A. and 5.1% for the company La Doria S.p.A.

On October 16th, 2015, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission extended the time granted to issue the Final Report up to January 17th, 2016 (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2015/124, 16.10.2015).
 
On 11 February 2016, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission decided to impose a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of prepared or preserved tomatoes from Italy, produced by the company Feger di Gerardo Ferraioli S.p.A. (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2016/13). The rate of the duty is 8.4% for the company Feger di Gerardo Ferraioli S.p.A., whilst no anti-dumping duty is applied for the company La Doria S.p.A.
