China’s Ministry of Commerce ruled this week broiler chicken products imports from the United States were subsidised, and as a result would be levied from 3.8 to 31.4% in anti-subsidy duties.

According to ChinaDaily.com, China started anti-dumping and anti-subsidy investigations into US chicken products imports last September.

American companies exporting broiler chicken products which had provided information to the Chinese investigation would face duties of 3.8 to 11.2%, while those that had not responded to probes would be subject to a 31.4%, the report said, quoting the ministry’s online press statement.

It said Chinese investigations showed that US broiler chicken exporters had received government subsidies, causing substantial losses to Chinese companies.

A broiler is a type of chicken raised specifically for meat production. The United States is the largest chicken products exporter to China, comprising 90% of the 407,000 tonnes of chicken China imported in the first half of 2009.
