Dear Ms Sugar:

In your letter dated June 13, 2002, on behalf of Indus Distributors, Inc., Toronto, Canada, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The product is described as a flavored milk used as a tea creamer or as an ingredient for making desserts. It is said to be composed of 99 percent concentrated cow’s milk, 0.5 percent flavoring, and 0.5 percent vitamins and stabilizer.

The applicable subheading for this product, if imported in quantities that fall within the limits described in additional U.S. note 10 to chapter 4, will be 1901.90.4200, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for food preparations of goods of headings 0401 to 0404, not containing cocoanot elsewhere specified or includedotherdairy products described in additional U.S. note 1 to chapter 4dairy preparations containing over 10 percent by weight of milk solidsdescribed in additional U.S. note 10 to chapter 4 and entered pursuant to its provisions. The rate of duty will be 16 percent ad valorem. If the quantitative limits of additional U.S. note 10 to chapter 4 have been reached, the product will be classified in subheading 1901.90.4300, HTS, and dutiable at the rate of $1.035 per kilogram plus 13.6 percent ad valorem.
