Breaking Trade News: New AD and CVD Petition Filed on Paper Plates from China, Vietnam and Thailand

The Petition, filed on behalf of the American Paper Plate Coalition (the “APPC”), concerns certain paper plates that are imported from China, Thailand, and Vietnam. APPC is comprised of six producers of paper plates in the United States:

  • AJM Packaging Corporation
  • Dart Container Corporation
  • Aspen Products, Inc.
  • Huhtamaki Americas, Inc.
  • 9201 Packaging Drive
  • Unique Industries, Inc.

The petition claims the paper plates were sold at less than fair value, and that certain paper plates from China and Vietnam benefit from countervailable subsidies. Petitioners claim that these imports have caused material injury and threaten additional material injury to the domestic industry producing paper plates.

Full list of producers here. Full list of U.S. importers here.

The proposed scope language is broad and includes “Paper plates, which may be white, colored, and/or printed, and if printed, may be printed and/or laminated by any means with images, text and/or colors on one or both surfaces.” Full description and scope here.

The Commerce Department will determine whether to initiate the investigations within 20 days. The USITC will reach a preliminary determination of material injury or threat of material injury within 45 days. Final determinations will likely occur late 2024.

As with any proceeding, participation is very important to protect your rights. We urge anyone that imports paper plates to pay close attention to this case and to ensure that all appropriate steps are taken to mitigate any damage.

Diaz Trade Law will continue to monitor this case and share updates. For more information or questions get […]
