Background

    On August 1, 2012, the Department initiated a sunset review of the 
suspended antidumping duty investigation on lemon juice from Argentina, 
pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the

(August 1, 2012). The Department received a notice of intent to 
participate from domestic interested party Ventura Coastal LLC 
(``Ventura''), a joint venture between Ventura Coastal and Sunkist 
Growers, Inc. (petitioner in the underlying investigation), within the

interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act as a 
manufacturer, producer, or wholesaler in the United States of a 
domestic like product.
    On August 31, 2012, the Department received a substantive response 
from Ventura. In addition to meeting the other requirements of 19 CFR 
351.218(d)(3), Ventura provided information on the volume and value of 
Argentine exports of lemon juice to the United States. The Department 
received no responses from other parties to this proceeding. As a 
result, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), the Department conducted an expedited (120-
day) sunset review.

    The merchandise covered by the suspended investigation includes 
certain lemon juice for further manufacture, with or without addition 
of preservatives, sugar, or other sweeteners, regardless of the GPL 
(grams per liter of citric acid) level of concentration, brix level, 
brix/acid ratio, pulp content, clarity, grade, horticulture method 
(e.g., organic or not), processed form (e.g., frozen or not-from-
concentrate), FDA standard of identity, the size of the container in 
which packed, or the method of packing.
    Excluded from the scope are: (1) Lemon juice at any level of 
concentration packed in retail-sized containers ready for sale to 
consumers, typically at a level of concentration of 48 GPL; and (2) 
beverage products such as lemonade that typically contain 20% or less

85.64 percent for San Miguel, 128.5 percent for Citrusvil and 113.52
