On April 22, 2019, Petitioner The Dried Tart Cherry Trade Committee filed a petition for the imposition of antidumping and countervailing duties on imports of dried tart cherries from the Republic of Turkey. Dried tart cherries may be processed from any variety of tart cherries. This investigation potentially covers dried tart cherry in all shapes, sizes, and colors, and whether whole, chopped, minced, crumbled, in granules, broken, or otherwise reduced in size. Dried tart cherries that are packaged with other products, such as mixtures of dried fruits and mixtures of dried fruits and nuts, are also potentially covered by this investigation.
This case potentially will impact many businesses in the fruit and agriculture industry. It could result in a significant increase to their supply chain costs if no action is taken.
