South Africa imposed provisional anti-dumping duties against bone-in chicken meat imports from Brazil and four European Union countries, according to a USDA GAIN report.

With this announcement, South Africa is now imposing antidumping duties against all nine countries that have regularly exported bone-in chicken portions to this market: the United States, Brazil, Spain, Poland, Ireland, Denmark, Germany, Netherlands and the United Kingdom. South Africa’s imports of poultry have declined by 63 percent in the past three years. The announcement of the latest duties threatens to lower imports even further.

The United States continues to face a 62 percent duty on bone-in portions and is restrained by the Tariff Rate Quota. If the quota is filled, additional imports from the U.S. will be charged an anti-dumping duty of 9.40 Rands per kilogram.
