Dear Ms. Muoio:

In your letter dated August 6, 1997, on behalf of Dole Packaged Foods Company, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The subject merchandise is stated to contain water, sugar, pineapple juice concentrate, pink grapefruit juice concentrate, malic acid, sodium citrate, ascorbic acid, pectin, grapefruit oil, pineapple flavor, Naringin and Roxanthin. The product is ready for consumption and will be imported packaged in retail containers.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
