Foreign-Trade Zone 9 -- Honolulu, HI; Application for Subzone Relocation
Dole Pineapple Plant
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) on behalf of the State of Hawaii, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone
9, by the Hawaii State Department of Planning and Economic Development,
requesting authority to relocate Subzone 9C for the pineapple cannery of
Dole Processed Foods Company, a division of Castle & Cooke, Inc., within
his Honolulu, Hawaii Customs port of entry area. 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 March 14, 1986.
The Board approved subzone status for Dole's existing pineapple cannery
on July 26, 1985 (50 FR 21210, 8-1-85). The 55-acre facility is located at
650 Iwilei Road, Honolulu.
A decision has been made to relocate the plant to a more rural location.
The new site is in the Kipapa Gulch area of Central Oahu, southeast of
Mililoni Town, and 2.3 miles north of the interchange of highways H-1 and
H-2. The relocation would not result in a change in the nature of activity
conducted under zone procedures, which allow Dole to take advantage of the
same duty-free treatment on tin plate/tin cans that is available to foreign
producers of canned pineapple.
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: Dennis Puccinelli (Chairman), Foreign-Trade Zones
Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230; George Roberts,
District Director, U.S. Customs Service, Pacific Region, 335 Merchant, 228
Federal Building, P.O. Box 1641, Honolulu, Hawaii 96808; and Colonel
Michael M. Jenks, District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Honolulu,
Building 290, Fort Shatter, Hawaii 96858.
Comments concerning the proposed subzone are invited in writing from
interested parties. They should be addressed to the Board's Executive
Secretary at the address below and post marked on or before April 24, 1986.
A copy of the application is available for public inspection at each of
the following locations:
