DEPT OF COMMERCE MEXICO IS DUMPLING TOMATOES IN THE U.S.
Source: Florida Tomato Exchange news release

On July 24, the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) announced that Mexican tomatoes are being dumped in the United States. The preliminary average dumping margin is 25.28 percent.

This announcement refutes the recent Mexican claims that the data they submitted to the DOC would prove that Mexican tomatoes are not being dumped into the U.S. market. Evidence that the Mexicans are dumping is not surprising news to domestic tomato growers who compete every day against unfairly traded Mexican imports.

The U.S. tomato industry looks forward to showing the U.S. International Trade Commission that it has been injured by the surging unfairly traded Mexican imports. Since 1994, according to USDA, tomato imports have flooded the U.S., increasing from just 20 percent of the market in 1994 to 60 percent by 2017.

Mexican tomatoes account for 90 percent of these imports. Meanwhile, the U.S. market share for American farmers has fallen from 80 percent to 40 percent as hundreds of growers have gone out of business.
