Evonik responds to termination of methionine anti-dumping investigation by China



Evonik has restated its commitment to China following the Chinese Ministry of Commerce' (MOFCOM) decision to close its anti-dumping investigation of the company concerning imports of methionine originating from Singapore, Malaysia and Japan.

MOFCOM decided to end the investigation and will therefore not be implementing tariffs on such imports. Its decision has been welcomed by Evonik which said its team will continue to serve the Chinese market with a range of quality products and services.

Dr. Emmanuel Auer, head of animal nutrition business line at Evonik said: "We have worked closely with the Chinese authorities while they conducted their investigations. We have been completely transparent with respect to the requested data and information.

"Most importantly, our customers will continue to benefit from supply reliability and security for an essential feed ingredient for a sustainable and affordable protein supply chain. We remain fully committed to our customers in China and across the world."
