To Bee or Not to Bee?

October 4, 2016

beesImport Specialists from the Miami based Agriculture & Prepared Products Center of Excellence in collaboration with U.S. Customs and Border Protection Officers seized around 42 tons of illegally imported Chinese honey.  This represents the third significant seizure of honey in four months.  The honey was contained in 132 fifty-five gallon drums that were falsely declared as originating from Taiwan to evade anti-dumping duties that are applicable on honey originating from China.

“Customs and Border Protection considers Trade Enforcement a priority since it levels the playing field for legitimate companies. The agency certainly does not want questionable companies having a competitive edge because they choose not to correctly describe their products to evade duties,” stated Center Director for Agriculture & Prepared Products Center of Excellence & Expertise Dina M. Amato.
