   Foreign-Trade Zone 41 -- Milwaukee, WI; Application for Extension of FTZ 
Subzone Status For SZ 41F, Ambrosia Chocolate Company Plant, Milwaukee, WI  
 
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the Foreign-Trade Zone of Wisconsin, Ltd. (FTZW), grantee of 
FTZ 41, requesting a 2-year time extension for FTZ subzone status at the 
chocolate products manufacturing plant of Ambrosia Chocolate Company 
(Ambrosia) in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The application was formally field on 
March 2, 1989.  
 
   In March 1987, the Board authorized subzone status for the Ambrosia plant 
(Board Order 346, 52 FR 10247, 3/31/87) for a two-year period (from date of 
activation), subject to extension. Subzone activity is restricted to the 
production of sugar-containing products subject to the sugar quota program.
 
   Zone procedures are being used for entries on the foreign sugar (approx. 
3 mil. lbs. in fiscal 1988) used to produce the intermediate product 
sweetened cocoa. Customs entries are made on the latter product, and the 
sugar is ex-quota. 
 
   In requesting the extension, Ambrosia indicates that subzone status has 
helped it compete with lower priced sugar-containing imports, preserving 
employment at its Milwaukee plant as had been contended in the original 
application. 
 
   Subzone authority is due to expire on April 24, 1989, and the FTZ Board
is considering a temporary time extension of up to one year, during which 
time the proposal would be evaluated as part of an overall review of 
sugar-related activity in zones, which would be the subject of a separate 
Federal Register notice. 
 
   The application for a 2-year extension is being reviewed by the FTZ 
Staff. Comments are invited in writing from interested parties. They should 
be addressed to the Board's Executive Secretary at the address below and 
postmarked on or before April 14, 1989. 
 
   A copy of the application is available for public inspection at each of 
the following locations:

District Office Federal Building,
