“However, a 10-25% increase in duties on frozen truffles from China would increase costs of ingredients for preserved truffle product to 22.3%-36.3% with increased duties, and Sabatino may have to cut employment at its West Haven facility as a result. Competitors, who do not manufacture in the United States, would likely imported truffle products directly from France, Italy, and Spain, at tariff rates well below 22-36.3% ad valorem, as fresh truffles are duty free from Europe. Sabatino would likely pay the increased duty and decrease its profit margin significantly, without increasing any prices to the customer to ensure customer commitment. As a result, Sabatino would suffer loss of revenue in the amount of approximately $100,000 annually.”
