Adisseo stands firm on fair competition and safeguarding customer interests in US anti-dumping case
On September 11, 2020, the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) voted to continue the anti-dumping investigation of methionine from France, Japan and Spain. Throughout this investigation, Adisseo intends to strongly defend its sales practices in the United States as well as the commercial interests of its valued US customers - open and fair competition on key feed ingredients like methionine is indeed essential to ensure the competitiveness of the US poultry industry on global markets.
While Adisseo said it was disappointed with the outcome, it was not surprising to them, given that the ITC makes an affirmative preliminary determination in a very high percentage of the cases it hears. The case now moves to the U.S. Department of Commerce, and will return to the ITC in 2021.
