Anti-dumping duties against xanthan gum from Austria in the United States

On May 29th, 2013, the U.S. Department of Commerce has announced a final dumping margin of 29.98% for xanthan gum from Austria.

Jungbunzlauer is very disappointed with the result which is based, in large part, on a technicality that has nothing to do with the prices at which Jungbunzlauer sells xanthan gum in the United States. Nevertheless, Jungbunzlauer is very confident that if an anti-dumping order is issued, the U.S. Department of Commerce will recalculate a reduced dumping margin during future proceedings.

Jungbunzlauer is a leading manufacturer of xanthan gum supplying customers worldwide with products meeting the highest quality standard. Jungbunzlauer is strongly committed to maintain its global presence and specifically committed to continue to service its customers in the United States.
