New York Mart Group in New York Satisfies Terms of Consent Decision and Order Involving Alleged PACA Violations



WASHINGTON, DC - On September 30, 2019, a complaint was filed by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) against New York Mart Group (NYMG). The complaint alleged that the Long Island City, New York-based company had failed to make prompt, full payment to 23 sellers in the amount of $896,107, violating the Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act (PACA).

Since then, the USDA and New York Mart Group entered a Consent Decision and Order, which the company has now satisfied.

Direct from the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service:

After the complaint was filed, USDA and NYMG entered into a Consent Decision and Order wherein NYMG agreed to pay the unpaid produce sellers listed in the Appendix A to the Complaint and to pay a civil penalty in the amount of $45,000. As a result of NYMG satisfying the terms of the consent decision and order, the finding that it had committed repeated and flagrant PACA violations was permanently abated without further process and the case has been closed.
