[Order No. 672]

Wisconsin Dairies Cooperatives, Preston, Minnesota; Grant of
Authority for Subzone Status

    Pursuant to its authority under 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 Order: Grant of authority for subzone
status: Wisconsin Dairies Cooperative (Infant Formula/Dairy Products),
Preston, 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
qualified 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 Area Foreign
Trade Zone Commission, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone No. 119,
Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota, area, for authority to establish a
special-purpose subzone for export activity at the infant formula/dairy
products manufacturing plant of Wisconsin Dairies Cooperative in
Preston, Minnesota, was filed by the Board on February 17, 1993, and
notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register (FTZ
Docket 6-93, 58 FR 11834, 3-1-93); and,
    Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the FTZ Act
and 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 119D) at the Wisconsin Dairies Cooperative plant in
Preston, Minnesota, at the location described in the application,
subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including
Sec. 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 23rd day of December 1993.

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