Determination of Total Amounts of Fiscal Year 2021 WTO Tariff-Rate Quotas for Raw Cane Sugar and Certain Sugars, Syrups and Molasses
The Office of the Secretary of the Department of Agriculture (the Secretary) announces the establishment of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 (October 1, 2020 – September 30, 2021) in-quota aggregate quantity of raw cane sugar at 1,117,195 metric tons raw value (MTRV), and the establishment of the FY 2021 in-quota aggregate quantity of certain sugars, syrups, and molasses (also referred to as refined sugar) at 162,000 MTRV.
Because the specialty sugar TRQ is first-come, first-served, tranches are needed to allow for orderly marketing throughout the year. The FY 2021 specialty sugar TRQ will be opened in five tranches. The first tranche, totaling 1,656 MTRV, will open October 1, 2020. All specialty sugars are eligible for entry under this tranche. The second tranche of 40,000 MTRV will open on October 8, 2020. The third tranche of 40,000 MTRV will open on January 21, 2021. The fourth tranche of 30,000 MTRV will open on April 15, 2021. The fifth tranche of 30,000 MTRV will open on July 15, 2021. The second, third, fourth, and fifth tranches will be reserved for organic sugar and other specialty sugars not currently produced commercially in the United States or reasonably available from domestic sources.
