NEW YORK (Reuters) - Some executives from U.S. companies that sell clothing, food and other products warn that costs related to the latest round of tariffs on goods from China will be passed along to consumers in the form of higher prices. The U.S. increased tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese imports to 25% from 10% last week. China retaliated with $60 billion of its own levies on a range of U.S. goods including frozen vegetables and liquefied natural

gas. U.S. President Donald Trump has also threatened an additional round of tariffs on $300 billion that would cover nearly everything imported from China to the United States. Del Monte Foods Inc - “It’s not just tariffs. Transportation costs are up, labor costs are up, Chief Executive Officer Greg Longstreet told Reuters at a conference in New York. “It’s an

inflationary environment. A lot of that’s going to have to be passed on. The consu
