According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), South Africa has imposed provisional anti-dumping duties against bone-in chicken meat imports from Brazil and four European Union countries.

With this announcement, South Africa is now imposing anti-dumping 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.
