AU: Strong action from tomato anti-dumping commission

The Statement of Essential Facts (SEF) by the Anti-Dumping Commission (ADC), has found that imported processed tomatoes from two Italian companies (Feger and La Doria) have been illegally dumped in Australia.

The Commissioner is recommending preliminary dumping duties be imposed at margins of 7.5% and 5.1%. Feger and La Doria’s exports represent approximately half of the imported Italian tomatoes in Australia. In SPC’s previous case, the ADC found that 103 of 105 Italian tomato exporters were found to be dumping.

In its SEF, the ADC has acknowledged the impact EU subsidies are having on Italian canned tomato prices. Since 2010, the illegal dumping of tomato products has resulted in material damage to SPC including reduced margins and declining profitability. SPC has struggled to compete on price with these heavily subsidised dumped Italian tomatoes.
