Puris Inc. Petitions Department of Commerce over China Dumping Pea Protein


Puris Inc. a major manufacturer of pea protein used in plant-based meat substitutes has petitioned the U.S. Department of Commerce and the U.S. International Trade Commission for protection against dumping by China.  The company alleges that high-protein content pea product is imported into the U.S. at less than fair market value and that manufacturers receives subsidies from the Government of China.


According to the International Trade Administration, the U.S. imported 143,000 tons of pea protein from China in 2022 valued at $267 million.


Tyler Lorenzen, CEO of Puris commented, “Our commitment to fair trade extends beyond our organization; it encompasses the broader industry and the economic stability of our nation.  A market operating on a level playing field benefits everyone involved – our network of hundreds of farmers, manufacturers, suppliers, investors and consumers.” 


Puris has requested the Department of Commerce to impose anti-dumping and countervailing duty to raise the price of subsidized high protein content product from China.
