The Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act (PACA) was created to ensure fair trade within the fruit and vegetable industry. This act enforces trade that is interstate and international and covers both fresh and frozen produce. Unlike other products which are only subject to state laws, produce is regulated under federal law. To ensure that your business is compliant with PACA, it is important to work with a knowledgeable agricultural attorney in California.
Christopher E. Seymour, Attorney at Law is familiar with the laws established under PACA and he can work with you to make sure that your business is in compliance. He can also review sales and production contracts to ensure they are sound and protect your business. U.S. produce traders are also required to have a PACA license, and Christopher E. Seymour can help to make sure you are fully licensed and have filed all the necessary paperwork. From reporting unfair trading practices to resolving contract disputes, partnering with an attorney is a vital component of owning and operating a produce business.
