Concerns that the price of frozen potatoes may increase in South Africa

The International Trade Administration Commission has introduced import duties on imported frozen potato chips from three countries in Europe namely Belgium, Netherlands and Germany for the next five years. The duties range from between 8.8% to 239%, to prevent further dumping.

Potatoes SA has welcomed the anti-dumping decision as it helps protect local producers and enhances local competitiveness. However, this means then that the local industry is going to have to make sure that it meets the remaining amount.
