Foreign-Trade Zone 29, Louisville, Kentucky; Application for Subzone at 
Sugar Plant of Southeastern Sweetners in Louisville 
 
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the Louisville and Jefferson County Riverport Authority (the 
Port), grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 29, requesting special-purpose subzone 
status for export operations at the sugar processing plant of Southeastern 
Sweetners Distributing Company, Inc., in Louisville, Kentucky, within the 
Louisville Customs port of entry. The application was submitted pursuant to 
the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 
81a-81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR Part 400). It was 
formally filed on July 28, 1983. The applicant is authorized to make this 
proposal under Chapter 65.530(b) of the Kentucky Revised Statutes. 
 
   On May 26, 1977, the Board authorized the Port to establish a foreign-
trade zone project in the Louisville area (Board Order 118, 42 FR 29323, 
6/8/77). The project covers 12 acres in an industrial park adjacent to the 
port area. It handled some $2 million in merchandise in FY 1982. 
 
   The proposed subzone would be located at the existing facility of 
Southeastern Sweetners, covering 1 acre at 1900 South Seventh Street in 
Louisville. The plant is involved in receiving domestic liquid sugar and 
corn syrup, liquifying, blending and repackaging the sweetners for 
domestic distribution. The company plans a new operation involving foreign 
dry sugar, which would be liquified and blended with domestic corn syrup 
in a ratio of 3 to 2. The final product would be exported. The application 
requests subzone procedures only for the reexport operation. 
 
   Zone procedures would exempt Southeastern Sweetners from duty payments 
and quota requirements on sugar used for reexport. This will assist the 
company in entering the export market, increasing employment at the plant 
by 8 persons and encouraging the use of domestic corn syrup for export 
products.  
 
   In accordance with the Board's regulations, an examiners committee has 
been appointed to investigate the application and report to the Board. 
The committee consists of: John J. Da Ponte, Jr. (Chairman), Director, 
Foreign-Trade Zones Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, D.C. 
20230; John F. Nelson, District Director, U.S. Customs Service, North 
Central Region, 6th Floor, 55 Erieview Plaza, Cleveland, OH 44114; and 
Colonel Charles E. Eastburn, District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District 
Louisville, P.O. Box 59, Louisville, KY 40201. 
 
   Comments concerning the proposed subzone are invited in writing from 
interested persons and organizations. They should be addressed to the 
Board's Executive Secretary at the address below and postmarked on or 
before September 26, 1983.
