United States Department of Agriculture Files Action Against G & K Citrus in Florida for Alleged PACA Violations



WASHINGTON, DC - According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), G & K Citrus has allegedly failed to make payment promptly to four produce sellers in the amount of $265,700 from October 2018 through July 2020. In doing so, the USDA has filed an administrative complaint against the Florida-based company for alleged violations of the Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act (PACA).

Direct from the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service:

G & K Citrus will have an opportunity to request a hearing. Should USDA find that the company committed repeated and flagrant violations, it would be barred from the produce industry as a licensee for three years, or two years with the posting of a USDA-approved surety bond. Furthermore, its principals could not be employed by or affiliated with any PACA licensee for two years, or one year with the posting of a USDA-approved surety bond.
