Following the decision by The Ministry of Commerce of the People’s Republic of China (MOFCOM) that it is closing its anti-dumping investigation against imports of methionine originating in Singapore, Malaysia and Japan, Evonik has restated its commitment to the region.
MOFCOM decided to end the investigation and will therefore not be implementing tariffs on this type of import. MOFCOM’s decision has been welcomed by Evonik and the company’s strong Chinese team will continue to serve the Chinese market with a range of quality products and services.
Dr. Emmanuel Auer, Head of Animal Nutrition Business Line at Evonik said: “We have worked closely with the Chinese authorities while they conducted their investigations. We have been completely transparent with respect to the requested data and information.
“Most importantly, our customers will continue to benefit from supply reliability and security for an essential feed ingredient for a sustainable and affordable protein supply chain. We remain fully committed to our customers in China and across the world.”
