News Brief: Tariffs on Buckwheat

As of October 15, buckwheat imported from China now has a 10% tariff imposed. On January 1, 2019,
this will increase to a 25% tariff. Unfortunately, our sourcing experts expect this to have an inflationary
effect on domestic buckwheat as well.

Firebird is committed to finding not only the best possible sources for buckwheat for you during this
trade dispute, but our team can also advise on alternative ingredients product developers and managers may want to consider.
