A 12-month suspension on anti-dumping duties for poultry from five countries has ended in South Africa. This followed an investigation into allegations of dumping "frozen bone-in" chicken portions, like leg quarters, imported from Brazil, Denmark, Ireland, Poland, and Spain. The International Trade Administration Commission (ITAC) found that the poultry was indeed being dumped into the Southern African Customs Union (SACU) market, of which South Africa is part of. Therefore, the South African Minister of Trade and Industry approved the commission's recommendation to impose anti-dumping duties as high as 265% on imports from Brazil (additional to an existing 62% tariff), 67.4% on Denmark, 85.8% on Spain, 96.9% on Poland and 158.4% on Ireland.
