Massachusetts: Cranberries removed from European tariff list

Cranberries are the largest agricultural food product in the state, with an annual crop value of $99.8 million. The industry provides 6,900 jobs and provides a $1.4 billion economic benefit. Now, the European Union has removed many cranberry products from its list of planned retaliatory tariffs, spelling relief for the Massachusetts industry.

 

US Representative William Keating from Massachusetts said he met with European officials on their decision to include cranberries on a list of tariffs. Eventually he learned that duties on so-called "prepared or preserved" cranberry products would be delayed until 2021. Cranberry juices are still on the list, but the reprieve covers two-thirds of cranberry products exported by Massachusetts to the EU, which takes about 55 percent of the state's cranberry products.

 

According to masslive.com, duties on items such as American bourbon, peanut butter, orange juice and cranberries were set to go into effect in July in response to tariffs on steel and aluminium announced by president Trump in March.
