On June 10th, 2021, the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) made an affirmative vote in connection with the antidumping investigation of imports of Methionine from France. Notwithstanding this outcome, Adisseo remains committed to the U.S. market as a consistent and reliable supplier of Methionine hydroxy-analogue. Unfortunately, the extremely restrictive nature of the tariffs on DL Methionine have forced Adisseo to exit this market segment, further limiting choice of suppliers.
Adisseo is very disappointed with this decision, as it reduces the options available to U.S. purchasers for methionine. The preliminary duties imposed by this investigation have already driven up cost substantially, cutting into margins for domestic animal protein producers, adding cost to the grocery bill for U.S. customers, and impacting the competitiveness of U.S. meat producers in export markets.
Globally, Adisseo has proven to be a leader in Methionine production, and continues to invest in new capacity & technology, to feed a growing planet.
