Home / Blog Page / Cranberry Industry Applauds Recent U.S.-UK Tariff Agreement

The U.S. cranberry industry welcomes the news of an agreement to remove Section 232 tariffs in the United Kingdom as a result of the settling of the long-standing steel and aluminum dispute.  Since 2018, U.S. cranberry concentrate has faced a 25 percent retaliatory duty in the U.K. as a result of this issue.  This duty has limited the U.S. cranberry industry’s ability to export to the market.  The removal of this tariff will allow U.S. cranberry concentrate to enter the market competitively, which will allow sales to expand. The U.S. cranberry industry is grateful for the resolution of this important trade issue.
