This is terrible. I am only a very small producer, I can't imagine what the large producers will do. No doubt the American buyers are going to balk at the higher price and expect the olive oil producers to lower their prices to force the tariff back onto the producers. We pay all pay 5 cents a kilo import duty now, jack that up to 0.17 a kilo that is over a three times increase. I know I won't lower my price to make up for the increase in customs duty but how many producers can realistically do that? The good news is, this is 2019, the next US election is in 2020 if we can string this out hopefully a new US President will be more focused on how important is is to have strong European allies.

This could be a disaster for both industries and countries. The US and the U.E has always great comercial relations. I invite to any american citizen to visit Europe and they ll see thats its plenty of all American companies making huge profits, paying low taxes since the central are located in Ireland paying less taxes with huge profficts. We are not like Russia, Australia or even China that when you open up an oversea company, push you to share the 50% of the titles to someone from Europe. Let's please stop this war or we'll lose and at the end, just the countries where the production is all low cost will be he ones who take advantage on this.. There are no winners or losers in a war. Both part will be damage.. #cruzoliva Spain could lose thousands of works and ruin families all over the country.

Trump only reacts to strength. Once Europe starts boycotting American businesses and products he will back down. How about everybody in Europe STOP buying on Amazon. Just STOP. Then a month later everybody stops buying Heinz Ketchup. Then a month later it is another product/business. Next nobody eats at Burger King or McDonalds. When Trump sees the European people are UNITED against him and American business are being hurt ONLY then will he cave in and change. You gotta HURT Trump to get his attention.

I agree but better if we don't start a Business war... We are already suffering the Block of Black olives from Spain. One of the reactions from Spain has been to purchase the largest American company Bell Carter to avoid the Extra cost of the duties from DCOOP. but they can do it since they are the largest producer in the world but what about the others.. ?
