Is egg tray eligible for export under AGOA?

Published on September 05, 2016

I wish to start an egg tray manufacturing business using recycled paper with the aim of exporting these products, please inform me if these products are eligible for the AGOA market. I am Based in Botswana, Southern Africa. Please feel free to contact me for any further information.

Answer:

Please note that egg tray made of recycled paper is exported to the United States with the subheading 4823.70.00 in the HTS US classification derived from HS code 482370 that describes Molded or pressed articles of paper pulp (e.g. trays, dishes and egg cartons).  However, the product is not eligible duty free under AGOA. Detailed information on the unit of quantity and rate of duty are available at this link  https://hts.usitc.gov/?query=482370,
