US: OJ companies attack 'unfair' Brazilians
Florida-based orange juice processors are petitioning the American federal government for anti-dumping duties to offset unfair prices offered by Brazilian processors.
The Florida Citrus Mutual Grower Organisation says that Brazilian processors have been dumping orange juice in the US during the past year for less than they charge their European customers and below production costs, with dumping margins from 37% for frozen to 78% for not-from-concentrate.
The US International Trade Commission and Department of Commerce will conduct an investigation, expected to last nine months.
Respondents include Cutrale, Citrosuco, Cargill, and Louis Dreyfus. Any US company importing these products might be subject to assessments.
