According to a recent USDA Foreign Agricultural Service report, South Africa's Minister of Trade, Industry and Competition announced a decision to suspend the imposition of Anti-Dumping Duties (ADDs) on poultry from Brazil, Denmark, Ireland, Poland, and Spain last week.

The suspension will last for a period of twelve months “considering the rapid rise in food process… as well as the impact that the imposition of the anti-dumping duties may have on the price of chicken.”

Although the Commission investigating dumping found that poultry originating in these countries was dumped into the Southern African Customs Union (SACU) market and recommended the application of ADDs, the Minister determined that the imposition of these duties would have a negative impact on the poor.

Despite the suspension of application of ADDs from the above-listed five countries, duties remain for Germany, Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
