                               [Docket No. 45-85] 
                                   51 FR 774 
                                January 8, 1986 
Foreign-Trade Zone 22 -- Chicago, IL; Application for Subzones; Power 
Packaging, Inc. (Sugar Blending/Food Processing) 
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the Chicago Regional Port District, grantee of Foreign-Trade 
Zones 22, requesting special-purpose subzone status for three food 
processing plants of Power Packaging, Inc., in the Chicago area. It 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 December 20, 1985. 
   Power Packaging is a contract food processor with annual sales 
approaching one billion dollars. The company is headquartered in West 
Chicago, and has 9 plants in the United States and one in Canada. Its 
primary business is blending, packaging and distributing food and beverage
products for a variety of customers, including major brands. The products 
include cake and flour mixes, breakfast cereals, pudding mixes, soup mixes,
sirups, soft drinks, juice and drink mixes, tea mixes, and other edible 
   The proposed subzones would involve the company's three Chicago-area 
plants, all of which are within 30 miles of Chicago: a 4.5-acre facility 
at 1815 Arthur Drive, West Chicago, Du Page County; a 4.2-acre facility at
425 South 37th Avenue, St. Charles, Kane County; and, a 4.1-acre facility 
at 200 East Fullerton, Carol Stream, Du Page County. The three plants 
employ 150 persons. In its blending activities the company uses about 40 
percent foreign ingredients, primarily sugar. 
   Zone procedures would exempt Power Packaging from duty payment and 
quota requirements on the foreign material used in its exports. On its 
domestic sales, the company would be able to take advantage of the same 
duty rates and quota treatment (sugar) applicable to imported finished 
food products. The use of world-price, ex-quota sugar will help Power 
Packaging's U.S. plants compete with imports of sugar-containing food 
products. The Department of Agriculture is being consulted regarding the 
implications of the proposal on the sugar quota program. 
   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, D.C. 20230; Richard Roster,
District Director, U.S. Customs Service, North Central Region, 610 S. Canal
St., Chicago, IL 60607; and Lt. Colonel Frank R. Finch, District Engineer, 
U.S. Army Engineer District Chicago, 219 S. Dearborn St., Chicago, IL 60604.
   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 postmarked on or before February 14, 
   A copy of the application is available for public inspection:
