US attack on Spanish olive imports

Tags: ,


The US authorities are preparing anti-dumping measures on imports of Spanish black table olives as of September. Farmers have warned the European Commission that this sets a “dangerous” precedent for CAP-subsided EU agricultural products.

In late June, the US Coalition for Fair Trade in Ripe Olives, filed a petition asking the US Department of Commerce and the US International Trade Commission to open an investigation into imports of olives from Spain.

The Coalition asked the US authorities to impose anti-dumping and anti-subsidy duties on imports of black olives from Spain. They said that such imports are sold at low prices due to subsidies from the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP).

“Dumped and subsidised Spanish ripe olive imports are severely impacting our industry,” said Tim Carter, CEO of Bell-Carter Foods Inc, quoted by USA Today.
