RE: Classification of Frozen Coconut Milk

Dear Ms. Gilbert:

Your letter of May 11, 1993, concerns the classification under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) of frozen coconut milk from Brazil.

Frozen coconut milk is classifiable under the provision for other food preparations not elsewhere specified or included, frozen, in subheading 2106.90.6095, HTSUS. The "General" column rate of duty is 10 percent ad valorem. However, products of Brazil classifiable in subheading 2106.90.60, HTSUS, are entitled to duty-free status under the Generalized System of Preferences, if all of the pertinent regulations are complied with.

Coconut milk is not subject to quota; however, all imported food is, of course, subject to the labeling and sanitation requirements of the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act and the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. For information pertaining to these requirements you should contact:
