On August 12, 2010, the CIT granted summary judgment for food importer Aromont USA, Inc. in Aromont USA Inc. v. United States. The CIT held that CBP had misclassified Aromont’s products as soup, subject to a 100 percent duty rate. The CIT found that the imported products should instead have been classified as “food preparations not otherwise specified” and subject to a duty rate of 6.4 percent ad valorem. In reaching its decision, the CIT considered the uses of Aromont’s products. Although CBP relied on a dictionary definition of “broth,” the CIT noted that many of Aromont’s customers used the importer’s concentrated products as more of a paste than a broth, and that customers did not use the products exclusively in soups.
