RE: The tariff classification of tomato powder from Mexico.

Dear Mr. Longoria:

In your letter dated September 15, 1989, and October 12, 1989, on behalf of Industrial Deshidratadora, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Samples accompanied your first letter, were examined and disposed of. The product is a red powder made by spray drying tomato paste. The powder is said to be 100 percent tomato solids; no carriers or other ingredients have been added. The product will be packed in both institutional and retail sized containers.

The applicable subheading for the tomato powder will be 2002.90.0050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for tomatoes prepared or preserved otherwise than by vinegar or acetic acid...other...other. The rate of duty will be 13.6 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177). A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
