                                Approval of

                          Wednesday, July 22, 1992

Pursuant to the authority granted in the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of June 18,
1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
Regulations (15 CFR Part 400), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) 
adopts the following Resolution and Order: 

Whereas, the City of Oakland, California, Grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone No.
56, has made application (filed 5-9-91, FTZ Docket 27-91, 56 FR 22842,
5-17-91) to the Board for authority to relocate and expand its
general-purpose zone in Oakland, California, adjacent to the San
Francisco/Oakland customs port of entry;

Whereas, the application was amended on July 8, 1991, to include a request
for authority on behalf of Advanced Blending Corporation to manufacture
milk-based infant formula for export under zone procedures within FTZ 56
(56 FR 38112, 8- 12-91);

Whereas, notices of said application and amendment have been given in the
Federal Register and public comment has been invited;

Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the Act and the
Board's regulations would be satisfied, and that the proposal, as amended,
would be in the public interest provided that the manufacturing authority
for Advanced Blending Corporation is limited to export activity, as
indicated in the amended application, and that all foreign-origin dairy
products and sugar admitted to the zone shall be reexported;

Now, Therefore, the Board hereby orders:

That the Grantee is authorized to relocate and expand its zone in
accordance with the application filed on May 9, 1991, and Advanced Blending
Corporation is authorized to manufacture infant formula under zone
procedures for export within FTZ 56, as requested in the amendment of July
8, 1991, subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations (as revised, 56
FR 50790-50808, 10-8-91), including  400.28.

Signed at Washington, DC, this 15th day of July 1992.
