U.S. Sugar Groups File Claim Against Mexico

Apr 02, 2014

Several U.S. Sugar groups have filed a petition with the International Trade Commission and the International Trade Administration at the Department of Commerce claiming that the government of Mexico is subsidizing and dumping sugar in the United States. The petition requests countervailing duties and antidumping duties to be placed on imports of sugar from Mexico.

The petition was signed by the American Sugar Cane League, American Sugarbeet Growers Association, American Sugar Refining Inc., Florida Sugar Cane League, Hawaiian Commercial and Sugar Company, Rio Grande Valley Sugar Growers, Inc., Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative of Florida and the United States Beet Sugar Association.

A notice of the investigation is expected to appear in the Federal Register tomorrow.
