In the end months of the year 2023, China decided to extend tariffs on distiller's dried grains with solubles (DDGS) from the United States for another five years, maintaining tariffs at levels of up to 66%. The move comes amidst high corn prices and weak domestic ethanol consumption in China due to which the domestic prices of distiller's dried grains with solubles (DDGS) in China as well as in Asian countries declined. The China Alcohol Industry Association supported the move, citing its effectiveness in curbing unfair trade practices and protecting the domestic DDGS industry.

DDGS, a high-protein meal, is widely used in livestock feed. On the other hand, the US traders estimate that the continuation of tariffs has not significantly impacted US exporters, as they redirected their sales to other markets like South Korea and Mexico, stabilizing the pricing patterns of distiller's dried grains with solubles (DDGS). The association warns that terminating anti-subsidy and anti-dumping measures could result in the resurgence of US DDGS exports to China at lower prices, potentially harming the domestic industry once again.
