“If the proposed tariffs are implemented, Firmenich will have no choice but to pass a portion of these costs on to our US customers, who in turn, will pass them on to the end consumer. This is in direct opposition to the intended purpose of these tariffs.  The additional monies spent on duties would limit the company’s ability to invest in various business activities such as research and development and hiring additional staff… The consequence of these tariffs could result in moving production overseas and loss of American jobs.”
