Local restaurants and bars have joined a nationwide movement calling on the Biden administration to end the 25% tariffs on European food, wine and spirits.
The Coalition to Stop Restaurant Tariffs, which represents restaurants and their suppliers in all 50 states, is calling on the Biden administration to end all tariffs on European food, wine, and spirits.
Led by renowned chefs and restaurant owners, the coalition seeks immediate executive action to provide tariff relief for restaurant owners already struggling to survive the debilitating COVID-19 pandemic.
The Biden administration says it will keep tariffs on some European wine, cheese and other food products, despite lobbying efforts by industry groups that argue the levies harm U.S. businesses.
The Biden administration has no immediate plans to end tariffs on European wine and other foods and beverages, to the dismay of importers and purchasers of those products.
