Resolution and Order

Pursuant to the authority granted in the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of June 
18, 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), the Foreign-Trade Zones
Board (the Board) adopts the following Resolution and Order:

The Board, having considered the matter, hereby orders:

After consideration of the application of the Greater Metropolitan Foreign
Trade Zone Commission, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 119, filed with the
Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) Board (the Board) on January 10, 1992, and amended 
on October 6, 1992, requesting special-purpose subzone status for export 
activity at the intermediate dairy products manufacturing facilities of 
Davisco International, Inc., in St. Peter, Nicollet, and Le Sueur, 
Minnesota, adjacent to the Minneapolis-St. Paul Customs port of entry, the 
Board, finding that the requirements of the Foreign-Trade Zones  Act, as 
amended, and the Board's regulations are satisfied, and that the proposal is
in the public interest, approves the application, subject to a restriction 
requiring that all foreign- origin dairy products admitted to the subzone 
shall be reexported, as indicated in the application.

The approval is subject to the FTZ Act and the FTZ Board's regulations (as
revised, 56 FR 50790-50808, 10-8-91), including section 400.28. The
Secretary of Commerce, as Chairman and Executive Officer of the Board, is
hereby authorized to issue a grant of authority and appropriate Board
Order.

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status

Davisco International, Inc., St. Peter, Nicollet, and Le Sueur, Minnesota
Whereas, by an Act of Congress approved June 18, 1934, an Act "To provide
for the establishment  of foreign-trade zones in ports of entry of the 
United States, to expedite and encourage foreign commerce, and for other 
purposes," as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u) (the Act), the Foreign-Trade Zones 
Board (the Board) is authorized to grant to corporations the privilege of 
establishing foreign-trade zones in or adjacent to U.S. Customs ports of 
entry;

Whereas, the Board's regulations (15 CFR part 400) provide for the
establishment of special-purpose subzones when existing zone facilities
cannot serve the specific use involved;

Whereas, an application from the Greater Metropolitan Foreign Trade Zone
Commission, Grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone No. 119, for authority to
establish a special-purpose subzone for export activity at the intermediate
diary products manufacturing facilities of Davisco International, Inc., in
St. Peter and Nicollet, Minnesota, was filed by the Board on January 10,
1992, and notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register
(FTZ Docket 1-92, 57 FR 3163, 1-28-92);

Whereas, the applicant amended the application on October 6, 1992, to
request subzone status for an additional Davisco plant site located in Le
Sueur, Minnesota (57 FR 47042, 10-14-92); and,

Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the Act and the
Board's regulations are satisfied and that approval of the application for
export processing is in the public interest;

Now, therefore, the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone
(Subzone 119A) at the Davisco International, Inc., facilities in St. Peter,
Nicollet, and Le Sueur, Minnesota, at the four locations described in the
application, subject to the Act and the Board's regulations (as revised, 56
FR 50790-50808, 10-8-91), including  400.28, and subject to the further
requirement that all foreign-origin dairy products admitted to the subzone
shall be reexported.

Signed at Washington, DC, this 11th day of January, 1993, pursuant to Order
of the Board.

Alan M. Dunn,

Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Chairman,
Committee of Alternates, 
Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
