Today, the foreign trade secretariat of the Ministry of Economy (SECEX) in Brazil published Circular No. 42/2020 in the official gazette, thereby opening a investigation of the anti-dumping duties on frozen potatoes from Germany, Belgium, France, and the Netherlands. The potatoes in question are classified under customs tariff number 2004.10.00 of the MERCOSUR Common Nomenclature.

The proceeding began following a request issued by Bem Brasil Alimentos S/A to investigate whether potatoes sprayed with spices were covered by the measures. The company stated that spices such as turmeric and saffron are used as food colouring and therefore frozen potatoes containing spices should also be subject to the anti-dumping duty.

Interested parties have 15 days to request a hearing, up until 22 July 2020. This way the measures can be taken into account going forward. Interested parties also have 30 days to submit written comments or evidence on the matter, up until 6 August 2020.
