At the end of 2018, the U.S. Trade Representative implemented a 90-day trade truce with China, delaying a proposed 25 percent tariff on China imports until March 1, 2019. The present tariff remains at 10 percent and at time of press it remains to be seen if the 25 percent tariff will take effect. While this tariff is impacting many industries, its effect of the dietary supplement industry may be significant with many of its prime raw ingredients such as Vitamin C coming directly from China.
