OTTAWA, Dec. 28, 2017 /CNW/ - The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) announced today that it is launching an investigation into whether or not certain dry wheat pasta (DWP) originating in or exported from the Republic of Turkey (Turkey) is being sold at unfair prices in Canada. It will also investigate whether or not subsidies are being applied to certain DWP originating in or exported from Turkey.
The investigations are the result of a complaint filed by the Canadian Pasta Manufacturers Association (CPMA) of Ottawa, Ontario. The CPMA comprises three members that manufacture certain DWP in Canada, namely Italpasta Limited, Primo Foods Inc. and Grisspasta Products Ltd. The complainant alleges that as a result of price undercutting from Turkey, Canadian industry faces lost production, lost sales, price depression, loss of employment, and reduced profitability.
Currently, there are 98 special import measures in force, covering a wide variety of industrial and consumer products, from steel products to refined sugar. These measures have directly helped to protect the Canadian economy and jobs in Canada.
