(Blended Syrup); Toledo, Ohio An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) Board by the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority, grantee of FTZ 8, requesting production authority on behalf of Arbor Foods Inc. (Arbor), located in Toledo, Ohio. The application conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.23) was docketed on October 10, 2019. The Arbor facility (over 40 employees, with two full-time employees for sugar blends) is located within Site 1 of FTZ 8. The facility is used for production of blended sugar. Arbor currently has FTZ authority to produce dry-blended sugar for the U.S. market, with a PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Product(s) The firm manufactures structural steel components. The firm manufactures metal parts, primarily of steel. The firm manufactures hard cider. ‘‘grandfathered’’ quantitative limit of 37.9 million pounds of imported ‘‘exquota’’ sugar. Arbor also has authority to produce blended syrup (aka wetblended sugar) for export only—with no quantitative limit on use of ex-quota sugar for that export activity. Arbor’s pending application seeks authorization to produce blended syrup for the U.S. market using up to the 37.9 million pounds of ex-quota sugar annually which, as noted above, is currently limited to production of dry-blended sugar. On its domestic sales, production of blended syrup under FTZ procedures would allow Arbor to choose the duty rate during customs entry procedures that applies to blended syrup (duty rate: 6.0%) for the foreign-status input (granular sucrose, either cane or beet, duty rate: 35.74 20B5; per kg). Arbor estimates that 54% of the blended syrup is comprised of the foreign-status component. Arbor would be able to avoid duty on the foreign-status component which becomes scrap/waste.
