EU acts against dumped fatty acid from Indonesia

Today, the European Commission imposed anti-dumping duties on fatty acid from Indonesia.

This follows an investigation which showed that EU industry was being harmed by dumped imports because it could not compete on price, resulting in a market share loss.

The anti-dumping duties imposed range from 15.2% to 46.4%. They will help to ensure fair competition between fatty acid imported from Indonesia and locally produced fatty acid.

Fatty acid is widely used in food, cosmetics and medicines. Palm oil is a key raw ingredient of fatty acid.
