                   (Docket 38-93; Foreign-Trade Zone 79)

Application for Subzone, Reilly Dairy & Food Company Plant (Dairy Products)
                                 Tampa, FL

                          Monday, August 16, 1993

An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade  Zones Board (the 
Board) by the City of Tampa, Florida, grantee of FTZ 79, requesting special-
purpose subzone status for export activity at the dairy products plant of 
the Reilly Dairy & Food Company (RDF), located in Tampa, Florida. The 
application 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 August 6, 1993.

The RDF plant (19,000 sq.ft./12 acres) is located at 6603 South Trask 
Street, Tampa, Florida. The facility (46 employees) is used to produce
various dairy food products for industrial and retail sales. The activity
to be conducted under zone procedures would involve cutting, slicing,
shredding, and repackaging foreign, ex-quota cheese for reexport, and
mixing and/or repackaging foreign milk powder and butter for reexport. None
of the foreign dairy products would be entered for U.S. consumption.

Zone procedures would exempt RDF from quota requirements and Customs duty
payments on the foreign dairy products used in the export activity. The
application indicates that the savings from zone procedures would help 
improve the plant's international competitiveness.

In accordance with the Board's regulations, a member of the FTZ Staff has
been appointed examiner to investigate the application and report to the 
Board. Public comment on the application is invited from interested parties.
Submissions (original and three copies) shall be addressed to the Board's
Executive Secretary at the address below. The closing period for their
receipt is October 15, 1993. Rebuttal comments in response to material
submitted during the foregoing period may be submitted during the
subsequent 15-day period (to November 1, 1993).

A copy of the application and the accompanying exhibits will be available 
for public inspection at each of the following locations:
Office of the District Director, 
U.S. Customs Service,
